Surgical fellowships are also available for qualified candidates. We strive to provide gold-standard medicine in a gold-standard environment, and offer a 1:6 DVM:Technician ratio, and a brand new, purpose-built surgical facility.
Medical Director Dr. True Baker's focus is cosmetic and elective surgeries on young Thoroughbreds. Our surgical caseload consists primarily of arthroscopies, tie-backs, fracture repair, conformational procedures for ALD, and occasional reproductive procedures. We are actively hiring rotating interns and plan to have two interns per year to support the surgeons and ambulatory practitioners with their caseload and patient care.
