What would McIndoe think of 21st Century Burns Care?

The Guinea Pig Club, founded in 1941 by patients of the famed plastic surgeon Sir Archibald McIndoe celebrates its 80th anniversary  in 2021.

As part of this, we are hosting a series of events focused on the impact of the club.

McIndoe’s East Grinstead was renowned for innovation, team work and looking to reconstruct the whole person, not just the skin. Much has changed since then but the spirit of innovation and care for our patients has not changed. This talk will cover the progress and challenges that face the modern surgeon and acknowledge not just where we have come from but also look to where we hope to go. It aims to link the work done by Sir Archibald McIndoe to the modern day and ask “What would McIndoe think of 21st Century Burn Care?”




(Thursday) 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
