Bertie Phipps


Residency Trained Orthopaedic Surgeon

Bertie graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2014 and immediately threw himself into all aspects of veterinary practice in a busy first opinion small animal hospital in Lancashire. During his 4 years in general practice, Bertie developed a keen interest in surgery and its co-disciplines, and completed a certificate in veterinary diagnostic imaging.

Bertie returned to the University of Liverpool in 2018 to complete a rotating internship before undertaking a 3-year European College of Veterinary Surgeons approved residency program in small animal surgery at an internationally renowned private practice in Surrey.

Bertie has presented research internationally and has published in several international veterinary surgery journals. He is interested in all aspects of orthopaedic surgery and especially enjoys complex traumatology and fracture management.

To Bertie, orthopaedics represents the happy marriage of helping our furry friends back up on their paws and a passion for using novel implant solutions, which he suspects may stem from his life-long obsession with LEGO. Outside of work, he is busy chasing around his young toddler son and being an enthusiastic, if not particularly speedy, home DIYer.
