Biography

Kevin Parsons graduated from the University of Bristol in 2000. He then worked in small animal and mixed practice in Devon and Cornwall for three years before completing a small animal internship, a PhD (in the field of locomotor biomechanics) and a three-year residency in small animal surgery at the Royal Veterinary College, London.

He attained his RCVS Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2009 and his European Diploma in Small Animal Surgery in 2011. Kevin moved back to Bristol University in 2010 where he is now clinical lead in small animal orthopaedics.

His clinical interests include all aspects of veterinary orthopaedics, however he particularly enjoys the application of 3D printing technologies to the treatment of angular limb deformities. Other interests include the management of complex fractures, stifle surgery and total joint replacements.

Kevin is actively involved in teaching undergraduate veterinary students. He is also involved in teaching on a number of postgraduate education programs.
