Meghan Sullivan, DVM, DACVS-SA, Surgery
Dr. Meghan Sullivan is a board-certified veterinary surgeon with 10 years of veterinary surgery experience. Dr. Sullivan completed her internship at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston before her surgery internship at VREC in Norwalk, CT. She completed her surgical residency at the University of Illinois.
Dr. Sullivan specializes in minimally invasive surgery such as arthroscopy and laparoscopy. She uses stifle arthroscopy for diagnosing cruciate disease and meniscal tears, shoulder arthroscopy for diagnosing and treating OCD or biceps disease, and elbow arthroscopy for diagnosing and treating elbow dysplasia.
Dr. Sullivan’s main interests include orthopedics such as tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO), total hip surgery, and fracture repair. Dr. Sullivan also earned certification in total hip replacement with Biomedtrix in 2017, and along with Dr. Agrodnia who completed her THR Biomedtrix training in 2012, will continue to provide total hip surgery in Maine. Portland Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Care is proud to have her as a member of our team.
Dr. Sullivan’s passion is helping brachycephalic dogs such as Frenchies, Boston’s, Bulldogs, Pugs, etc., to have a better quality of life with airway surgery. She also believes that large and giant breed dog owners should all be aware of the risk of GDV, and recommends that any giant breed dog have a prophylactic laparoscopic gastropexy performed at the same time as the spay or neuter to help prevent that fatal condition.
Dr. Meghan Sullivan, her husband Matt, two boys, dogs, and cat are excited to have moved to Maine to pursue their hobbies of skiing, boating, hiking, fishing, and exploring the outdoors.
