E Singer Equine Surgery
Ellen Singer attended Swarthmore College (BA 1983) and Tufts University (DVM 1987). After three years of mixed and equine practice she completed a DVSc/Surgical Residency programme at the Ontario Veterinary College (1994). After two years as Head of the Large Animal Clinic at the Koret School of Veterinary Medicine (Israel) she joined the School of Veterinary Sciences at the University of Liverpool as a Lecturer in Equine Orthopaedics. In 2002 she became a Senior Lecturer. Ellen's primarily clinical interests are orthopaedic disease and orthopaedic surgery of the sport horses. Research interests include the adaptation of bone to exercise and the effect of different racing surfaces on bone and joint biomechanics. Current research projects involve investigation of the histomorphometric changes in the P1 sagittal groove and the effect of altering foot slip (in vitro) on bone strain. Ellen has a particular interest in fractures of the racing Thoroughbred, in particular the first phalanx. Ellen is an enthusiastic supporter of Three Day Eventing and National Hunt Racing, attending both sports as a veterinary surgeon and spectator.
