Dr Marc Gladman


Marc is a colorectal surgeon whose chief clinical interests are minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery for complex colorectal and pelvic floor disorders, such as faecal incontinence and constipation. He set out on his journey to better understand pelvic floor dysfunction 20 years ago, by training in gynaecology, urology and colorectal surgery in London and Sydney.
Currently, he is Chair of the Section of Academic Surgery and the Academic Surgery Committee and and of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and Chair of the Surgical Research Society of Australasia.
Marc is an active researcher and recognised as an international expert on the function of the bowel in health and its dysfunction in disease. Marc's abiding research interest is the understanding of bowel function and dysfunction and the application of such knowledge to improve patient care. He completed a PhD on pelvic floor disorders and has published over 50 original papers, including seminal work on the prevalence, mechanisms and treatment of constipation and faecal incontinence. Currently, he serves as the Chair of the Surgical Research Society of Australasia.
He is a passionate educator and has written numerous textbooks, including "Examination Surgery: A Guide to Passing the FRACS in General Surgery" and the highly acclaimed "Clinical Cases and OSCEs in Surgery", which has won recognition at the British Medical Association national book awards.
