Derek B. Fox


Derek B. Fox


Dr. Fox served both the roll of clinician mentor and research mentor during my residency at the University of Missouri. He was and continues to be influential in both my professional development as a veterinary surgeon, but also in my personal growth. Dr. Fox is a true surgical artist; because of him, I understand that even orthopedic surgery can be performed pristinely. I am forever grateful to have full understanding of “just a smidge”; “measure twice, cut once”; and “all things ALD”.

Dr. Fox has been an exceptional mentor and friend throughout my start as a young academic surgeon and clinician scientist.
