ACVS Foundation
Honored Mentor

William D. Liska


Dr. Liska is always there for us—setting the example for excellence, and providing surgical guidance and moral support and encouragement. He strives to make Small Animal Orthopedic Surgery the best it can be by dedicating his life to teaching and sharing his expertise and research with all of us.

I was fortunate to have superb mentors. They enlightened me to realize that being a Mentor is an awesome responsibility. For me, being a Mentor means accepting the charge of doing everything possible for as long as it takes to help the Mentee excel and become the best surgeon they can be. Gratifying contentment and pride arrives as time rolls on. Recognition bestowed by Mentee accolades via the ACVS is humbling, appreciated, and a great honor.
