Dr Jérôme Benamou
Specialist surgeon
DMV, IPSAV, Dipl. ACVS-SA

After receiving my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2008, I focused on small animal surgery. After several internships, a research fellowship in orthopedics (Michigan State University) and a residency, I graduated from the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS) in 2017. Since 2015, I have practiced specialized pet surgery at several referral centers in the greater Montreal area, before embarking on the adventure of mobile surgery with Coupez! I'm trained to perform soft-tissue surgery (urogenital, digestive, respiratory, and oncology), orthopedic (TPO, TPLO, deformity corrections, fractures, etc.), as well as neurosurgery. I have participated in numerous research projects and scientific articles in international veterinary journals.

I am the father of Mathilda, an adorable little girl who occupies most of my spare time. Four "survivors" complete my family: three cats (Pastille, Croquette, and Fugueuse) and Barbie, a tiny Chihuahua cross who was abandoned because she had a broken leg that I repaired.
