Dr. Brittany Cerroni received board certification in surgery from the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2016. She enjoys performing all types of soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries but has a particular interest in minimally invasive joint surgery (arthroscopy), thoracoscopic and laparoscopic procedures, and minimally invasive fracture repair. She also has extensive experience in performing surgical procedures in exotic pets such as ferrets, guinea pigs, rabbits, geckos, hedgehogs, prairie dogs, chinchillas, and tortoises.
Dr. Cerroni graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. She then completed a 1-year rotating internship at Red Bank Veterinary Specialists in New Jersey followed by a 1-year surgical internship at Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center in Houston, Texas. She went on to complete a 3-year small animal surgical residency at the Animal Specialty Center in Yonkers, New York where she continued to work for another year as a specialist. She returned to Texas where she honed her arthroscopy skills as a surgeon at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists. Prior to attending veterinary school, she received a BS in animal science from Cornell University in 2005.
Dr. Cerroni believes in contributing to the veterinary surgical knowledge base and has published multiple articles; she also actively participates in ongoing research projects.
She is originally from West Chester, Pennsylvania, and is happy to be back in the area. She shares her home with 2 mixed breed dogs, a cat, and numerous saltwater fish. One of her dogs is a terrier mix named Trixie, who was originally a stray that was hit by a car and brought to Dr. Cerroni’s workplace by a Good Samaritan. Trixie had a badly damaged hind leg that required amputation, and Dr. Cerroni performed the surgery and cared for Trixie while she recovered. After an unsuccessful search for her owners, Trixie joined Dr. Cerroni’s animal family and has become the most amazing athlete. Her Instagram name is “TrixieTheTripod.”In her free time, Dr. Cerroni also volunteers at a local wildlife clinic.
