Hello! My name is Behzad (Ben) Ajilian. I have been practicing companion animal medicine and surgery since graduating in 2003.
My special interests are small animal surgery, emergency medicine and to some stage small mammals and birds medicine and surgery. I enjoy all aspects of Small Animal Medicine and Surgery, but have greater interest in surgery especially orthopaedics.
