Surgery: Dr. Alasdair Renwick
Dr Alasdair Renwick is an internationally recognised specialist in small animal orthopaedic surgery in both Australia and the United Kingdom. Graduating from Glasgow Vet School in 1996, Alasdair has always had a passion for surgery, but spent 11 years as a general practitioner, before choosing to specialise in orthopaedics and spinal surgery. He trained in surgery at Willows Referral Centre, one of the largest private referral hospitals in Europe, gaining the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Diploma in Orthopaedics in 2011. He then moved to Scotland’s busiest orthopaedic referral clinic. In addition to his very busy referral caseload, Alasdair is also an honorary lecturer and examiner for the postgraduate education department of Liverpool University Vet School. He has also lectured in the UK, Australia and recently co-organised and ran the first veterinary orthopaedic conference in Vietnam. He has a number of individual and multicentre publications covering a range of orthopaedic conditions.
Having spent a year in Australia in 2003, Alasdair has always loved Australia and decided to emigrate with his family to join Hallam Veterinary Referral Hospital in 2018. He has extensive experience in all aspects of orthopaedics and strives to give the best possible care according to the latest evidence. He is also passionate about giving clients an honest appraisal of the likely outcomes of treatments and only recommends surgery when it is not only possible, but is the best course of action in each individual situation.
