Dr. Ned Trathan

Dr Trathan

I moved to Oakdale in 2013. My focus of interest is orthopedic surgery, primarily, the repair of complicated fractures with the aid of bone plates and external skeletal fixation. I also enjoy performing TPLO surgery for the treatment of cruciate ligament disease in the canine knee.
I grew up in Cambridge, England and gained my degrees at the University of Liverpool, England, graduating in 2008 with both a Bachelors and a Masters in veterinary science. In 2011, I completed a scholarship in orthopedics and neurosurgery at www.fitzpatrickreferrals.co.uk. I have two dogs, a cat, nine chickens, a goat and a steer. I love living in the community of Oakdale and look forward to meeting all of you and your animal friends in the near future.
