Talk is on spinal surgery and will cover how the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment options for common surgical spinal conditions. I will focus on practical tips to accurately localise the neurological signs, determine when surgery is indicated and which cases can be medical management. Dr Peter Gilbert graduated from the University of Queensland in 1991 and worked in general and emergency practices in Queensland and the UK over the next 12 years. In the early 2000s the desire to become a small animal surgeon really took hold. In 2003, Peter became a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Small Animal Surgery. A surgical internship at the Animal Surgery Centre in Melbourne followed in 2004. The journey continued (with the family in tow) with a move to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Canada. While there, Peter completed a small animal surgical residency and a Master of Veterinary Science in small animal surgery. Peter became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2010. Following his residency Peter stayed on as an Associate Professor for 4 years and was chief of service for the last 2 years of his time there. In October 2013 he returned to Australia to work for Veterinary Specialist Services in Brisbane. Peter has written book chapters, published multiple papers and spoken in the USA, Canada and Europe. Peter has a keen interest in minimally invasive surgery (arthroscopy, laparoscopy and thoracoscopy), wound management, orthopaedics, joint and tendon disorders, surgical oncology and neurosurgery. Peter has a keen interest in teaching and providing CE to veterinary professionals.
