I am a graduate of the University of PA. College of Veterinary Medicine, where I also completed an internship, residency and taught as an instructor. I have been at North Carolina college of Veterinary Medicine since 1982 and I hold the position of professor of equine surgery. I am board certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons and the American Board of Laser Surgery and Medicine. My research interests are abdominal and respiratory surgery involving equine disorders. I have pioneered standing laser endoscopic surgical techniques and adept in performing standing laparoscopic surgeries in the equine species. I have also owned and shown successfully hunter and jumping horses as well as thoroughbred race horses. I remain an active ridder and continue to present and publish in my areas of expertise.
My research interests are abdominal and respiratory surgery involving equine disorders.
