Fitzpatrick Referrals hosts the largest team of specialist veterinary surgeons dedicated to orthopaedics in the UK.

Orthopaedic surgeons at Fitzpatrick Referrals are part of an integrated team of veterinary care professionals who all provide individual and dedicated round-the-clock care for our patients. Our specialists focus on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a variety of musculoskeletal disorders.

We are passionate about understanding the evolution of small animal diseases and endeavour to nurture and encourage current and future generations of veterinary surgeons through ongoing learning. We work collegially with specialists across the medical field in the hope that one day, companion animals will be seen as equal beings to humans.

This unique collaboration has allowed us to become the only centre in the world offering companion animal services to include custom-made total joint replacements for most joints in dogs.

Having this expertise working in unity under one roof, allows us to focus on delivering excellence in all aspects of your pet’s clinical needs and emotional needs.
