Our orthopaedic surgeons form a very experienced team for hip replacement. Professor John Innes, Ben Walton, Mark Morton and Dave Thomson are all very experienced hip surgeons and, typically, two of our surgeons perform each hip replacement together as a team. Professor Innes was the founder of the British Veterinary Orthopaedic Association’s Canine Hip Registry.
Hip replacement can be a transformational procedure and careful assessment and counselling from one of our experienced surgeons is the first step in the process. It is important for pet owners to understand the benefits of the procedure as well as the risks and that starts with communication from one of our experienced team.
