In this episode, Imani (@iemcelroy) sits down with Dr. Lyssa Ochoa, vascular surgeon and founder of The San Antonio Vascular and Endovascular (SAVE) Clinic, discussing her efforts to decrease diabetic foot amputations in South Texas. Dr. Ochoa was born and raised along the Texas-Mexico border and attended medical school, general surgery residency, and vascular surgery residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX. Understanding that collaboration is key to change health outcomes, Dr. Ochoa has partnered with hospitals, managed care organizations, universities, non-profit organizations, local school districts, city council districts, and clinicians of all kinds to develop amputation prevention programs, awareness platforms, and additional resources.
