Dr. Rodgerson has been profoundly influential in my life through his mentorship during my internship at Hagyard. He imparted invaluable knowledge in equine surgery and guided me through writing my first case report. His expertise and support have not only shaped my career, but also instilled in me a passion for equine surgery.

Dr. Rodgerson has a tremendous philanthropic spirit and is the utmost colleague and friend.
