Robert Walton, MD, Professor of Surgery, Division of Plastic Surgery, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, IL

Dr. Robert Walton despite his outstanding academic achievements and cutting edge contributions in the field of research has never forgotten the small town values of the community in which he was raised.  After completing his undergraduate studies and medical training at the University of Kansas, he served a surgical internship and residency at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.  For his outstanding performance he was named a Halsted Fellow both years.  Dr. Walton then went on to Yale University where he completed his general surgery residency and plastic and reconstructive surgery fellowship.  Long before “global surgery” came into vogue, Dr. Walton traveled to Haiti in 1976 during his residency to volunteer his time and talents.  Since that time, and over the past 41 years he has traveled at least annually and of late, multiple times during any one given year to drive his private foundation Proyecto Miro, which was established in 1992, to provide gratis plastic and reconstructive services to the poor served by the San Jorge Children’s Hospital in Santurce, Puerto Rico.
