Tom Shaw

Tom graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2011 and subsequently spent 1 year completing a rotating internship in the USA. He then returned to the UK and worked in general practice for two years before starting a residency in Neurology and Neurosurgery at Bristol University in 2014. He finished his residency and was awarded the European Diploma in Veterinary Neurology in 2017 before becoming an RCVS specialist in Veterinary Neurology the following year. After this he stayed at Bristol as a senior clinician until he joined Willows in 2018.

Tom enjoys all areas of Veterinary Neurology but his main area of interest is the application of 3D printing technology to solve difficult problems in spinal surgery. So far he has developed titanium-printed systems for kyphotic spinal malformations, laminoplasty procedures and atlantoaxial instability. He also has an interest in neuro-oncology, Chiari-like malformation/syringomyelia and surgical procedures of the caudal fossa and fourth ventricle, and has published and presented at international conferences in these areas.

Tom lives in Warwickshire and enjoys exploring the area with his family, cycling and running.
