Bvsc (Hons) MRCVS Cert SAS
After graduating from Bristol Veterinary School in 2003 I joined the PDSA as a veterinary surgeon with a surgical bias. To improve my surgical technique, I spent one day a week observing surgery at the RVC for 2 years.
I passed my certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2009. I moved to Bow PDSA as Head Veterinary Surgeon where I managed a 9-vet team, a branch and the 24-hour emergency service. In 2010 I moved to Village Vets where I acted as Group Head of Surgery.
In 2013 I started to offer peripatetic surgical referrals in London. I now cover over 80 veterinary practices across London, Essex, Hertfordshire, Surrey, Suffolk and Kent. I have operated on in-excess of 1000 surgical cases in the last year. Four hundred and fifty of those being cranial cruciate ligament repairs with a 3% complication rate. There has been a rapid growth in enquiries, so I am adding to my team and looking to expand further.
