ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany doctor is back from a unique overseas teaching trip.

Dr. Thomas Bozzuto, Medical Director of the Phoebe Wound Care and Hyberbaric Center, spent a week in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He led courses for more than 60 participants from civilian facilities in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait as well as the Saudi Navy.

Bozzuto said, "I enjoy teaching other people the specialty that I enjoy so much. Personally what I get out of it, in addition to seeing other countries, learning other cultures, and seeing how they do things, is the personal satisfaction that I taught somebody something new."

Officials at the hospital that hosted Dr. Bozzuto presented him with a plaque and a ceremonial sword in appreciation for his work.
