Soft Tissue Surgery

Our Soft Tissue Surgery clinical service is run by two of our vets, Chris Aylott and Adam Maxton, at both our Chesham and Chalfont St Giles surgeries.  

 Chris graduated from the University of Glasgow in 1990. After spending a couple of years in mixed practice, he moved into small animal practice and has been working in small animal practice ever since. Throughout his career Chris has had a keen interest in all types of surgery and is now our most experienced vet. He is equally happy doing delicate dissection in soft tissue surgery as he is using the drills and saws in orthopaedics. 

Adam graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2015. Since then, he has worked in small animal practice, most recently in central London. Adam has completed further training in small animal surgery and enjoys all aspects of surgery, with a special interest in soft tissue surgery.
