Introducing our Head of Neurology…
It is the turn of Sue Fitzmaurice to be introduced today. Sue recently joined Team Ralph as our Head of Neurology and Neurosurgery. Please read on to find out a bit more about Sue and her role at The Ralph.
Sue graduated from the University of Sydney Veterinary School in Australia and completed her speciality training in Neurology and Neurosurgery at the University of Pennsylvania. For the past few decades, Sue has worked in referral practices in England as a specialist. As well as writing a textbook about Small Animal Neurology in 2009, she also identified Lafora disease as an inheritable problem in the Mini Wirehaired Dachshund in 1997.
Here at The Ralph, Sue is responsible for investigating and treating many neurological conditions that our patients may be experiencing. These can include seizures, loss of balance, paralysis, collapse, behavioural change, neck or back pain, facial paralysis and blindness to name but a few! Sue provides a specialist-level Neurology service in which we tailor the diagnostic and treatment plan to match the needs of our patients. She also works with our other clinical services to ensure our patients benefit from a holistic approach to their care.
In her spare time, Sue can be found on on the croquet lawns, trying to lower her handicap. She also enjoys the British flora and countryside footpaths (so much so, that she won’t be leaving the UK!). When at work, Sue can usually be found having cuddles with our patients. She doesn’t have any pets of her own at the moment but her ambition is to share her home with a Mini Wirehaired Dachshund. Watch this space….!
We are delighted to welcome Sue to Team Ralph. Stay tuned for more news and goings on from The Ralph.
