Russell graduated from the University of Bristol Veterinary School and has a self-confessed addiction to learning! He has studied various post-graduate qualifications including the RCVS Certificate in Small Animal Orthopaedics, an MSc in Orthopaedic Engineering and RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Orthopaedics.

His current clinical interests are multimodal osteoarthritis management and regenerative medicine and he is currently studying for an MSc in stem cells and regeneration at the University of Bristol.

Russell explains why he thinks imposter syndrome is such an issue for veterinary professionals and how it works in conjunction with the scientific discipline.

As someone addicted to learning, we discuss one of Russell’s degrees in orthopaedic engineering. We ask: what exactly does that mean? How did he find it as a veterinarian working with human surgeons? And how has it impacted his work?

We then discuss his work combining orthopaedic work with stem cells and regenerative medicine. Russell explains what stem cells are and how they can be used in a way that’s very easy to understand and summarises all of the things you need to know about stem cell therapy in this week’s 60-second CPD.

Lastly, Russell talks about his work with the Veterinary Orthopaedic Alliance and the importance of practising gratitude in both your professional and personal life.
