We welcome Luke to the equine vet team. He is a very experienced clinician and specialises in lameness and surgery. Luke is an Advanced Practitioner in Equine Surgery (Orthopaedics).
Luke has extensive experience expanding across first opinion practice but also expanding in more depth across orthopaedics, soft tissue surgery, and large animal emergency critical care. He has performed significant research in these topics, also focusing on minimally invasive large animal surgery and the development of new surgical techniques. Luke has worked predominately as an equine vet in a variety of hospitals and practices, including Head of the Clinical Veterinary Services at the Donkey Sanctuary and head of the Equine Medicine and Surgery Departments at the University of Pretoria, South Africa.
Whilst working in South Africa he was also responsible for working with local wildlife so feel free to question him about the more challenging aspects of operating on rhinoceros!
