We are incredibly proud of all of our surgeons and the work that they do, and Ian Nicholson is certainly no exception. He is one of four NSW nominees for Australian of the Year 2016. From the award website:
"One of Australia's leading cardiothoracic surgeons, Dr Ian Nicholson has a heart of gold. A regular volunteer with Open Heart International since his first trip to Fiji in 1994, Ian has travelled throughout the Pacific and Africa to give people in developing countries the lifesaving surgery they deserve yet cannot afford. Each year, Ian lands in places like Papua New Guinea, Rwanda and Cambodia to run a 'patient production line' that treats both children and adults suffering from a range of treatable conditions from congenital heart defects to rheumatic heart disease. With selfless generosity, Ian has mentored medical teams in developing countries for two decades, passing on his skills and knowledge to help them gain self-sufficiency. Operating in a number of hospitals throughout Sydney including Sydney Adventist Hospital, Ian also represents the interests of Open Heart International within the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. Donating countless hours and immeasurable expertise, Ian gives many people, both young and old, a second chance at life."
Good luck, Dr Nicholson!
