Forum overview:

Our team will redefine soft tissue sarcomas (STS) in dogs and cats and address diagnosis and treatment planning for curative and palliative approaches in STS.

This interactive course aims to support clinicians with the management of these soft tissue sarcomas on a case-by-case basis taking into account pathological data, anatomical and surgical particularities and finally by being able to advise on adjuvant treatments such as radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy.

Speakers:

Dr Henry L'Eplattenier

Dr.Med. Vet PhD DiplECVS MRCVS
Clinical Director
RCVS Specialist in Small Animal Surgery
European Specialist in Small Animal Surgery

Henry L’Eplattenier was born and grew up in Neuchâtel, in the French-speaking region of Switzerland. He studied at Bern University, then worked for the pharmaceutical company Ciba-Geigy in Basle (now part of Novartis) as a doctoral student in the Toxicology Department, where he completed a Swiss doctorate on nephrotoxicity testing of drugs using cell cultures.

Henry worked in large animal practice for one year in the beautiful and rural Jura mountains just south of Basle, before joining the Small Animal Hospital at Zurich University. He spent four years there and completed his specialist training in Small Animal Surgery under the supervision of Prof Pierre Montavon (the inventor of the Zurich Cementless Hip Prosthesis for dogs).

He obtained his Diploma of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons (ECVS) in 1998, then emigrated from Switzerland and moved to Oslo, Norway to live with his partner. After learning Norwegian, he joined the Norwegian Veterinary College as an assistant professor in Small Animal Surgery. In 2001, Henry was offered a position as a soft tissue surgeon at Utrecht University. He spent the next 5 years as a lecturer in Utrecht, where he was mainly responsible for the Small Animal urology consultations and operations.

Henry left Utrecht University to join VRCC in 2006, where he is a consultant surgeon and head of Surgery. In 2008 he was also made a director of the clinic. In 2009, Henry obtained his PhD from Utrecht University for the research on prostate cancer in dogs that he conducted while he was a lecturer there.

Henry has been involved in the Examination Committee of the ECVS and has also been a member of the Board of the ECVS. In 2015 he was elected President-Elect and is now the President of the ECVS. Henry was made Clinical Director in December 2016 when VRCC joined the Linnaeus Group and became Southfields Veterinary Specialists.

After studying veterinary science at Lyon and Maisons-Alfort in his native France, Jérôme spent three years in the USA. A self-confessed ‘onco-maniac’ since his early years as a veterinary student, he fell in love with radio-oncology while in the US due to its exact physics and specific biology.

He completed a residency at North Carolina State University, passing his certifying examination in radiation oncology in 2010 (American College of Veterinary Radiology – Radiation Oncology). Jérôme, is also a diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging, Radiation Oncology (2015) and is the first RCVS-recognised expert in the field (2017).

He then spent five years working as a veterinary radiation oncologist at VRCC, which was rebranded as Southfields earlier this year, and then three years in France working in a leading veterinary cancer centre, before returning to Southfields Veterinary Specialists in 2017.
