Jack graduated as a veterinarian from the University of Sydney and after a short period in general practice, travelled to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Canada, where he worked and undertook further training in a range of veterinary disciplines. Jack then returned to the University of Sydney to complete his specialist residency training and research masters degree in small animal surgery, during which time he developed clinical interests in many areas of surgery. Following his board-certification examinations, Jack worked as a specialist surgeon for several years in referral practice in Melbourne before most recently working as a clinical surgeon and lecturer between 2019-2021 at the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals at the Royal Veterinary College, UK, the world’s top-ranked veterinary school.
Jack believes that working collaboratively with owners and other specialist disciplines results in the best care possible for the, at times, complex needs of his patients. Quality of life is key to every recommendation he makes which often means that surgery may not be the best option in a given situation. His surgical interests are diverse and include minimally-invasive surgery (laparoscopy, arthroscopy), improving the quality of life of dogs affected by brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome (BOAS), management of joint diseases (cruciate ligament disease, joint fusion procedures), treatment of bone fractures and other trauma-related injuries and surgical management of spinal diseases.
Jack enjoys reading, running and squash outside of work, and of course, being back in sunny Sydney.
