Please can you tell me a bit about yourself?

I received my DVM and PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Iowa State University. I completed my surgical residency at the University of Pennsylvania. I served as a faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania and Iowa State University and is currently an Endowed Professor of Surgery at the University of Minnesota. Beyond the training stuff, I was raised in a college town, have two daughters and, our family backbone, my wife of 29 years Jeanine.

Did anyone or anything in particular inspire you to specialise in biomedical engineering? What do you find most interesting?

Gail Smith, a surgeon and engineer (now retired) inspired me to get my PhD in biomedical engineering when I was a resident and faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania.

What do you think the future holds for orthopaedics or veterinary medicine in general?

On the surgical side of things, I hope we not only continue to advance care but develop treatments that are not cost prohibitive so more pets can receive care - very few in the USA have pet insurance. Maybe that will change.

What attracts you to coming to lecture at VET Festival in the UK?

Professor Noel Fitzpatrick and visiting London again - one of my favourite cities.

What are you hoping that delegates will take away from your lectures? Why is it so important for them to attend?

In my talks, I try to balance the information so I cover treatments that is generally done by referring veterinarians, what is more often done by specialists and where the new information is taking us.

Mike Conzemius is speaking at the following sessions

Friday
15.15 - 16.00
Orthopaedics
