Dr Jon Shippam

Referral Orthopaedic Surgeon

Dr Jon Shippam - Clinical Director
Dr Jon Shippam BVSc CertSAS MRCVS RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery Clinical Director

Jon graduated from the Liverpool vet school in 1998. After 2 years in mixed practice he moved to a small animal practice and in 2004 he was awarded the RCVS Certificate in Small Animal Surgery. Jon became the surgeon for a busy small animal hospital in Gloucestershire where he treated first opinion and internally and externally referred surgical cases. He also saw referral cases in the Bristol area as a visiting surgeon. Jon has a wide range of surgical experience including joint surgery, fracture stabilisation, wound reconstruction, abdominal and thoracic surgery (including laparoscopy and thoracoscopy) and airway surgery. In 2006 he started performing the TTA procedure and in 2009 he began using arthroscopy and has made stifle arthroscopy and meniscal treatment part of his routine for managing cruciate cases. In 2010 he became one of the few in the UK certified to perform PennHIP radiography. He has a special interest in the use of CT for planning tailored treatments for the hind limb deformities that cause patellar luxation.

Outside of work Jon spends time with his family, enjoys cycling, attempts to play the guitar, and has great interest in technology.
