Clinical Profile

Graduated from Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in 2000 before pursuing an internship at San Luis Rey Equine Hospital in California. Then following 3 years of ambulatory equine practice at the Rainbow Equine Hospital, I headed back to the States to complete a Large Animal Fellowship at Oregon State Veterinary Teaching Hospital followed by an Equine Surgical Residency at the University of Davis Veterinary Hospital, California. Following completion of the residency I remained as a staff surgeon for 18 month during which time I completed my surgical board exams and achieved diplomate status in 2009. I returned to the Rainbow Equine Hospital to join the surgical team. I spend my day investigating poor performance in horses, advanced lameness cases and doing elective orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery. Over the years I have developed a specific focus on the use of computed tomography for diagnosis and surgical planning of lower limb and cervical disorders and have a surgical interest cervical arthrodesis for management of equine degenerative myelopathy. In addition I am an FEI veterinary Delegate for eventing and regularly officiate at Events in the UK.
