Michael W. Ross


Michael W. Ross


Dr. Ross was an unforgettable mentor who stood out amongst a group of very distinguished surgeons. His passion and attention to detail, from the initial examination of the horse through the postoperative care, truly shaped the surgeon I am today. There are few in this field who have the gift of delicate soft tissue handling that he has. I will be forever grateful for his guidance and teaching.

Dr. Ross has been influential in making me the veterinarian and surgeon that I am today. I have been impressed with his career-long dedication to the profession and to teaching students, residents, and colleagues around the world. I owe much of my success to his mentorship.

Dr. Mike Ross has been one of the most influential veterinary influences of my career. As a mentor, one must invest in the success of his mentee. For this to occur it requires someone who is compassionate, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, has excellent communication skills, and possesses the attributes of a good teacher and trainer. Mike Ross was all these things to me and too many others. Without his investment in me as a young veterinarian I would not be the veterinarian I am today.

Troy Ford, DVM, DACVS

Dr. Mike Ross was not only my residency program advisor but an incredible mentor and friend. Working with Dr. Ross during my surgery residency made me into a better equine clinician and lameness diagnostician. I feel fortunate to be able to pass on the things I learned from Dr. Ross to the students and residents I work with today and cannot thank Dr. Ross enough for all the memories and shared laughs along the way!

Holly Lynn Stewart, VMD, DACVS (Large Animal)
