Professor Guy Maddern

Professor of Surgery, University of Adelaide, Director of Research, Royal Australasian College of Surgeons

Guy was a member of the original team which met in the early 2000s at Balliol College in Oxford to formulate the IDEAL Collaboration.  This led to the initial Lancet publications in 2009.  Since then I have been active in attending IDEAL meetings and advocating for the initiative.

Currently I am directing the surgical innovation assessment of new procedures and technologies for the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, which also has as its role to encourage Australian and New Zealand surgeons to work through the IDEAL Scheme for new procedures and devices.
