The practice offers orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery for pets. It is a referrals-only practice, so if you are a pet-owner, you need to contact your own vet first. Located on Stirling Business Park on the A52 heading towards Derby.

Bart qualified in 1994 from the University of Ghent, Belgium, achieving a long held dream to be a veterinary surgeon.

After small animal roles around the UK and locum work in France, Holland and Belgium Bart settled in the Midlands to pursue his love of surgery. He moved to the animal charity PDSA to increase his surgical caseload, and he passed the Royal College Veterinary Surgeon Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2003. From there, he spent several years in large small animal practices taking responsibility for surgical cases and he eventually settled in Derbyshire. In 2020 he joined a fantastic team at West Midlands Referrals, fulfilling a lifelong ambition to focus on orthopaedic surgery and became part of the mobile team travelling to practices to perform surgery in-house. This gave him the experience and confidence to get started on his own.
