Patrick Pollock is Senior Clinical Fellow in Equine Surgery at the Weipers Centre Equine Hospital, part of the University of Glasgow's vet school. Patrick is a European and Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Recognised Specialist in equine surgery.
We are very fortunate to have Patrick visiting to look at and treat some of our more complex cases. To date Patrick has undertaken a large variety of procedures from lameness exams on more complex cases to respiratory investigations using the dynamic endoscope that he helped develop. He has also carried out a diverse range of surgery from complex sinus surgery to check ligament desmotomy, neurectomies, splint bone fracture removal, reconstructive surgery (Gadd’s procedure), cryptorchid castrations, removal of dentigerous cysts etc, etc!!
Its great to be able to act as a halfway house between what we normally offer and referral to a specialist centre. For some clients it avoids a long trip to Glasgow but in other cases horses have been referred on for specialist procedures which are not available in the North East of Scotland.
Patrick’s next visit is 8th April 2015
