ESSOWEB - Awards

ESSO Award session Bill Heald 1 for the website The 2013 ESSO Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Professor Bill Heald in recognition of his professional life dedication to the research and development of the Total Mesorectal Excision (TME) technique for rectal cancer. His Award lecture addressed: "2013 a year of challenges in the technique of TME".
Bill Heald enjoys an international reputation as a cancer surgeon. He is only one of only a handful of living surgeons who have developed a new operative technique that definitively improves outcomes for cancer patients. In Professor Heald's case, he has devoted his professional lifetime to developing the operation of total mesorectal excision (TME) for rectal cancer. He was the first to appreciate that rectal cancer threatening the radial surgical resection margin was the major cause of local recurrence of disease following proctectomy. He appreciated that rectal excision, as previously practiced, was being performed inadequately in the wrong anatomical plane, and that proctectomy should also include the anatomical mesorectum. The development of TME has single handedly reduced local recurrence of rectal cancer following proctectomy from 25% in the early 1980s to below 5%, a reduction of 80% in the prevalence of one of the most difficult to treat sites of cancer recurrence.
Bill Heald is Director of Surgery at the Pelican Cancer Foundation and has a personal chair of surgery at the University of Southampton. He is a former Vice-President of the Council at the Royal College of Surgeons of England. He is past-President of the Section of Coloproctology at the Royal Society of Medicine and of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland. He has recently received numerous honorary degrees and Professorships in Sweden, Holland, Switzerland, Italy, Israel, Germany, Poland, France, Austria, China and Serbia. He has performed over 500 operations in more than 50 countries around the world and remains extremely active in teaching, training and mentoring colorectal surgeons.
