Clinical Interests

I have worked in primary veterinary practice, but the majority of my 30-year clinical career has been spent working in the university referral hospital. I currently deal with secondary or tertiary orthopaedic, and joint complaints and I am part of the emergency team for abdominal and thoracic problems. I am routinely involved fracture repair, arthroscopy, fracture surgery, correction of limb deviations and surgery for developmental conditions such as hip replacement, and cranial cruciate rupture. In the clinic I supervise interns and residents and teach undergraduate veterinary students. I have an interest in shelter and welfare medicine as I am a trustee of Battersea Dogs and Cats home.

Teaching and Research

I am involved in veterinary research mostly related to the problems that are seen in our orthopaedic clinic and scientific research in relation to bone and joint conditions in people with a current emphasis on the synthesis of new cartilage in osteoarthritic joints, and osteosarcoma. I teach and tutor undergraduate, masters and postgraduate students. I have an institutional responsibility in the provision of learning opportunities for day-one skills for prospective veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses. I also have a college wide remit in the support, control, and development of assessment structures including major undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications and I am involved in educational research on the reliability and validity of assessment methods. I have over 50 publications in the peer reviewed literature.
