One word describes Dr. Avery Bennett’s passion — surgery. All areas of surgery. Surgery of exotic animals. Microsurgery. Minimally invasive surgery. Oncologic surgery. And when he is not doing surgery, he is teaching others about surgery. Intro to Surgery. Small Animal Surgery. Microsurgery. Comparative Surgical Seminar. Clinical & Lab Practice.

A graduate of Michigan State University, Dr. Bennett is a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. He started his career, however, with a degree in mathematics and a minor in Spanish. Since that time, Dr. Bennett has served on the faculties of the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida and the College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Illinois, in Urbana. Dr. Bennett also was chief veterinarian at the San Francisco Zoological Gardens

Recently, Dr. Bennett joined the staff of The Animal Medical Center (in New York City, where he is — surprise! — chief of surgery. Veterinary surgical specialties there include: orthopedic surgery, soft tissue surgery, neurosurgery, minimally invasive surgery and dentistry.

A respected veterinary surgeon, researcher, author and lecturer, Dr. Bennett has published nearly 100 research papers and 40 textbook chapters to date. So it should come as no surprise that he will be presenting on “The Most Common Ferret Surgeries” at the IFC Symposium in Tempe this June.
