Orthopaedic & Spinal


Stewart qualified from Liverpool University in 1987. He has worked in veterinary practice since then, initially being senior surgeon in charge of orthopaedics and general surgery at two large veterinary hospitals.

Stewart set up a general practice in Shrewsbury in 1994. He gained the RCVS Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 1998 and has offered an orthopaedic referral service to practices across Shropshire and its bordering counties since then.

Stewart opened Shrewsbury Pet Hospital in March 2005, where the brand new premises allow for dedicated orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery suites, so that advanced procedures can be performed with minimal risks of infection. The new premises also allow us to provide the essential 24 hour nursing care that many of our patients need.

Areas that Stewart is happy to see cases in include:

  • Spinal Cases – Investigation and treatment of spinal pain, paresis or paralysis
  • Hip Disease – Triple pelvic osteotomy or non-cemented total hip replacements
  • Stifle Disease – Cruciate ligament repair, luxating patella surgery, treatment of multiple ligament injury
  • Fracture Repair and Management of Severe Trauma Cases
  • Corrective Osteotomies
  • Joint Arthrodesis
  • Osteochondrosis and Elbow Dysplasia
  • Arthroscopy

Stewart is always happy to discuss cases with colleagues and offer telephone advice where appropriate.
