Dr. Laurent P. Guiot

Laurent P. Guiot, DVM, DACVS, DECVS


Dr. Laurent Guiot is a world-class orthopedic surgeon with a passion for excellence. Heavily influenced by his parents, a veterinarian and a human doctor, he always knew he wanted to go into orthopedics.

Laurent followed his heart to veterinary school. There, he obtained his degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Liege (Belgium) in 2004 and completed a general internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the same institution.

Laurent then worked for one year in Paris where he was in charge of the general surgery program. He rejoined academia in 2006 as an international surgical fellow at Michigan State University where he also completed a three-year residency program with an emphasis in orthopedic surgery. He became boarded by the American and European College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2011.

Following his residency, Laurent became an assistant professor of orthopedic surgery in the Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences and an attending orthopedic surgeon at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Michigan State University. He was then recruited to lead the creation of a new orthopedic surgery facility for the Ohio State University in Dublin, Ohio. During his tenure for OSU, he and his colleague, Dr. Reunan Guillou, developed a comprehensive total joint replacement center and performed the first TATE elbow replacement in Ohio.

Laurent’s major interest is orthopedic trauma and minimally invasive orthopedic surgery. He routinely presents his work internationally and is an active member of major national and international orthopedic programs including the Veterinary Orthopedic Society, the AO (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (German for “Association for the Study of Internal Fixation”)), and the Orthopedic Research Society.

Laurent is committed to the improvement of patient care through the development of surgical techniques, instrumentation, and implants used for the treatment of orthopedic patients. He speaks French fluently and outside of the hospital, Laurent enjoys flying and piloting small aircraft, playing squash, and has a special interest in classic foreign cars.
