Orthopaedic Specialist surgeon, Andy Moores, has been appointed the new Chairman of the British Veterinary Orthopaedic Association (BVOA). Having previously served as Junior Vice Chair, he is perfectly placed to steer the organisation through an exciting two years of education. Andy took over the role at the 2024 spring meeting in Manchester ahead of BSAVA Congress.

Andy, who co-founded the Moores Orthopaedic Clinic, has been a member of BVOA for over 25 years. During this time he has been instrumental in organising scientific meetings and initiated the ever popular BVOA discussion forum.

“It’s a great honour to take on the role of chairman for an organisation that I am so fond of.” Says Andy, “I am passionate about education and have taught, lectured and published widely. In my role at the Moores Orthopaedic Clinic I am always happy to discuss cases and assist colleagues as much as possible. I truly believe sharing knowledge is essential to successful patient outcomes, and BVOA allows this in numerous ways. My thanks go out to the rest of the BVOA committee for continuing to ensure we have a strong and vibrant Association, especially to Mark Bush my predecessor and to Sarah Girling who has left the committee this year after serving as Senior Vice Chair.”

Andy previously held the position of Junior Vice Chair for BVOA. He is a well-recognised RCVS and ECVS Specialist and in 2017 was made a Fellow of the RCVS for meritorious contributions to clinical practice. He has taught numerous surgical residents and is widely published in many areas of orthopaedic surgery. In 2023 he opened the Moores Orthopaedic Clinic, a dedicated orthopaedic-only referral clinic near Basingstoke in Hampshire.

All veterinary professionals with an interest in orthopaedics are welcomed and encouraged to join BVOA. Membership provides access to a discussion group, a biannual newsletter, and discounted CPD. More information on BVOA can be found at
