Willows has a Top Team for Hip Ops

17 February 2019

Willows is very happy to announce that we now have an expert team of six orthopaedic surgeons who are certified to carry out the complex Total Hip Replacement (THR) operation.

Alexis Bilmont, a European Specialist in small animal surgery, is the latest in the Specialist Orthopaedic Team to gain his THR accreditation.

Alexis now joins fellow Specialists, Toby Gemmill, Jonathan Pink, Steve Clarke, Bill Oxley and Kinley Smith, in one of the largest and most experienced teams in the country.

Toby Gemmill, who is also Clinical Director at Willows, said: “Everyone is delighted Alexis has joined the team and earned his THR accreditation, as it means we can offer even more high-quality care and treatment to our patients.”

The Orthopaedic Team is able to perform total hip replacements on all patients from the smallest dog or cat, weighing only a couple of kilos, right up to the largest dogs weighing more than 100kg.

The skills of the THR Team are also complimented by the support and assistance of on-site Specialists in imaging, anaesthesia and critical care and we are committed to providing the best level of care to our patients and an excellent service to our pet owners and referring veterinary surgeons.

Toby also said “Willows is widely recognised for its ground-breaking work in the THR field and the addition of Alexis will further strengthen this. We are proud of our 20 years’ experience of performing hip replacements, in which time we have improved the quality of life for hundreds of dogs and cats. We are also happy to share our knowledge and experience in this discipline with others in the industry. Our vets have published scientific papers on total hip replacements and given presentations at conferences and meetings around the world.”
