Although Assoc Prof Chris enjoys all aspects of surgery, he has particular interests in veterinary orthopaedics. Outside of the surgical theatre, Assoc Prof Chris is also passionate about education. Assoc Prof Chris pays an important role in teaching both veterinary and human medical students at the University of Sydney and the University of NSW, respectively.
