Following Dr. Gauger’s retirement in early 2023, our orthopedic surgical services have been in the skilled hands of Dr. Tim Gintz and Dr. Stuart Sherburne. Dr. Gintz began working with Dr. Gauger prior to his retirement and has more than three decades of experience in orthopedic surgery, including more than 1,000 successful TPLO procedures. Dr. Sherburne specializes in spinal surgery, fracture repair, and joint disease, and regularly utilizes minimally invasive surgical techniques. Both Drs. Sherburne and Gintz have trained extensively with nationally recognized experts in veterinary orthopedics, and they’re ready to coordinate with you to provide trusted care for your patients’ orthopedic needs.
