Reunan Guillou, DVM, DACVS

ACCESS – LOS ANGELES

Dr. Reunan Guillou, a native of France, received his DVM degree in 2004 from the University of Nantes (France). His passion for surgery led him to seek advanced training in North America. After completing a general internship and a surgical internship in Montreal (Canada), Reunan seized the opportunity to be involved in orthopedic research at Michigan State University as a research associate. He then furthered his clinical training through a Surgical Fellowship followed by a Residency Program at Michigan State University and became board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2013. He stayed on for a year at Michigan State University as an Assistant Professor and was then recruited to lead the creation of a new orthopedic surgery facility for the Ohio State University in Dublin, Ohio.

Over the past decade, Reunan has gained considerable experience in minimally invasive orthopedic surgery. He developed a special interest in arthroscopy (shoulder, elbow, and stifle) as well as in the treatment of bone fractures under fluoroscopic guidance. Based on promising early results and the general trend towards less invasive techniques in both human and veterinary traumatology, he truly believes that minimally invasive orthopedic surgery has become the standard of care and he strives to apply this philosophy in his everyday practice.

Another strong interest of Reunan’s relates to total joint replacement. Over the last three years, he co-developed with his colleague Dr. Laurent Guiot the first center in Ohio, and one of the very few centers in the world, to offer a comprehensive total joint replacement center, performing total elbow, total knee, and total hip replacement.

An author of book chapters and numerous peer-reviewed scientific articles, Reunan has also lectured extensively on the state, national, and international levels on general orthopedics, joint replacement surgery, and minimally invasive bone fracture repair. He has received numerous awards and recognitions for his work and is involved in several international orthopedic societies. Reunan is also a member of the editorial board of major veterinary surgery journals and is currently the scientific program chair for the Veterinary Orthopedic Society, which holds the largest meeting dedicated to veterinary orthopedics in North America.

Outside of the hospital, Reunan enjoys soccer, hiking with his family, friends, and dog, as well as traveling.
