The remarkable story of Professor Fiona Wood AM, world-leading burns specialist and one of Australia’s most innovative and respected surgeons, whose ground-breaking research and technology development has changed the lives of burns patients. When three bombs tore out the heart of Bali and destroyed so many Australian lives in 2002, burns surgeon Professor Fiona Wood and her team were there to help. A pioneer in the field of burns and reconstructive surgery, Fiona made world headlines with the use of her own invention of ‘spray-on skin’ to help minimise her patients’ terrible scarring. Fiona was later made Australian of the Year, voted Australia’s Most Trusted Person for an unprecedented six years running in the annual Reader’s Digest poll and acclaimed as a ‘National Living Treasure’.
