Simone graduated from the University of Parma (Italy) in 2010 and subsequently spent four years in general practice. He then completed two internships, the first in a busy, orthopaedic biased referral centre in Merseyside, the second at Willows.
In 2017 he embarked on a four year combined small animal surgery residency, and master’s in veterinary medicine at the University of Glasgow. He became a diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2022, shortly before joining the Orthopaedic team at Willows. Simone’s interests cover all aspects of orthopaedic surgery, particularly fracture repair. When not at work, he enjoys spending time with his two dachshunds, Tito and Theo.
