B.W. Furlong & Associates Hires Board Certified Equine Surgeon

2018-01-02 – Oldwick, NJ –  B.W. Furlong & Associates is thrilled to announce the addition of board certified equine surgeon, Dr. Petrisor Baia, to the practice in Oldwick, New Jersey.

Petrisor Baia, DVM, MS, Diplomate ACVS, brings a wealth of formal education, research, and years of excellent surgical experience to B.W. Furlong & Associates. The inclusion of a full-time equine surgeon allows for a comprehensive, full-service experience for clients and their equine patients, with options from initial evaluation and diagnostics, to surgical solutions, to rehabilitation at the on-site Furlong’s Soundness Center.

“It has truly been an international search, spanning about three years, to find someone with the superior qualifications, experience, and quality of patient outcomes that Dr. Baia will bring to the table at our practice,” said Dr. Brendan Furlong, President and Founder of B.W. Furlong & Associates. “Finding Dr. Baia is the final piece of the puzzle for a complete, start-to-finish patient experience that we can provide here at our home base.”

After earning his veterinary degree and finishing three internships, Dr. Baia completed his Residency in Equine Surgery at the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine in Baton Rouge, LA. He then went on to serve as an equine surgeon at Acadiana Equine Hospital, located in the heart of Louisiana’s Thoroughbred racing circuit, performing both elective and emergency surgical procedures.

“I am very excited to join the team of professionals at B.W. Furlong & Associates and help develop the surgical service of the practice. I look forward to working together in providing great service to the clients and referring veterinarians, as well as cutting edge care to their equine patients,” Dr. Baia said.

B.W. Furlong & Associates has long been associated with superior veterinary care and cutting-edge sports medicine diagnostics, regenerative medicine, and rehabilitative therapies, as well as having an onsite standing MRI and sport horse rehabilitation center. While the practice has previously offered emergency surgeries through the on-call services of board-certified surgeons, Dr. Dennis Milne and Dr. Michael Fugaro, clients will now have a wider array of surgical options, in addition to traditional emergency surgeries, available to their horses with the addition of Dr. Baia to the team.

“In interviewing Dr. Baia, one thing that stood out in particular was his extensive surgical experience with a varied caseload,” stated Adam Furlong, Project Manager. “Not only will his skill set complement our lameness and performance services, but he will similarly support our medicine caseload. Dr. Rachel Gardner is particularly excited about working with him as they expand the specialty procedures we have available for our hospital patients.  Having experienced, board certified specialists in both surgery and internal medicine will help increase the ways we can provide exceptional care to our patients.”

The addition of Dr. Baia is yet another step towards continuing the mission of B.W. Furlong & Associates: to be an integral part of our clients’ equine dreams and ambitions.
