Dr Fiona Wood

Burns Treatment Specialist

WA State recipient Australian of the Year 2004

In October 2002 Fiona Wood made headlines. She and her team treated badly burned Bali victims at the Royal Perth Hospital with spray on skin, her own medical breakthrough that is revolutionising burns treatment. This new treatment, which is continually developing aims to improve the quality of life for those suffering from burns. Promoting motivational discussion groups and speaking to the youth of our nation, Fiona works around the clock, yet continues to remain modest and unassuming.
