Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital is very pleased to announce that Dr. Wes Sutter will be joining their highly regarded team of Board Certified Surgeons this year on December 1st. Dr. Sutter is well recognized for both his skills as a surgeon and as a lameness diagnostician and will be a welcome addition to Rood & Riddle's impressive group of surgeons: Doctors Rolf Embertson, Larry Bramlage, Alan Ruggles, Scott Hopper, Brett Woodie, Katie Garrett, Jose Bras, Katy Dern and Karen Beste. Our current surgeons will continue providing clients with the expertise they have come to depend on. Dr. Sutter will expand our capabilities. Sutter's primary veterinary interests are orthopedics and lameness.
Dr. Debbie Spike Pierce, the chief executive officer of Rood & Riddle, stated “We are very excited to have Dr. Sutter join Rood & Riddle. Our surgery group has an unparalleled reputation for excellence in equine surgery and Wes will be an asset to the group.” Dr. Sutter added “I am looking forward to joining a great group of veterinarians who are first class in everything they do.”
Dr. Sutter was born in Lander, Wyoming and received his bachelors of science in biochemistry from Colorado State University in 1997. He then completed his doctor of veterinary medicine from Colorado State University in 2000. Following veterinary school he completed a one-year rotating equine surgery and medicine internship at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky, making his upcoming move to Rood and Riddle, something of a homecoming.
After finishing his internship, Dr. Sutter completed a surgical residency at The Ohio State University where he later served as an assistant professor in equine orthopedic surgery before entering private practice as a surgeon at Ocala Equine Hospital. After 5 years at Ocala Equine Hospital, he co-founded Lexington Equine Surgery and Sports Medicine and will practice there until he officially begins at Rood & Riddle in December.
Also joining Sutter at Rood & Riddle will be Dr. Daniel Devis, who has been practicing with him for the last eight years. Dr. Devis will continue to work with Dr. Sutter and will help provide continuity of service. He is also excited about continuing to develop his own Thoroughbred and sport horse clientele. Devis, a native of Colombia where he attended veterinary school, has interests in follow-up surgical care, the developing equine athlete, lameness, sales work and sport horse care. Drs. Sutter and Devis look forward to continuing to serve their many existing clients as well as offering their services to current and new Rood & Riddle clients.
