Dr. Melissa Hobday, VMD, DACVS, reached a life-changing turning point upon completing her bachelor's degree in Fine Arts and Sculpting: She would continue her education and pursue a path in human medicine or dedicate her life to saving animals. Fortunately for us, she chose the latter, and in the words of Dr. Hobday, "Surgery is merely an extension of art." Dr. Hobday completed her degree in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Pennsylvania and furthered her credentials by becoming a board-certified veterinary surgeon. Prior to working with Furdunkin, she spent the last 23 years of her career fine-tuning her craft across several specialty and advanced referral hospitals in the Philadelphia area. In addition to her personal accomplishments, Dr. Hobday has trained and mentored over 20 residents looking to grow from the depth and breadth of her experience. We are both humbled and honored to welcome Dr. Hobday to our growing team of specialists.
Dr. Lynch, B.V.M.&S., DACVS-SA was born into a family full of veterinarians and equestrians. Growing up watching his father perform surgery sparked a lifelong pursuit of surgery.

For his work in the area of fracture fixation and 3D printing, Dr. Lynch has been a podium speaker at the annual American College of Veterinary Surgeons surgery summit and had his research featured on the cover of the medical journal, Veterinary and Comparative Orthopedics and Traumatology. Dr. Lynch also holds numerous patents for orthopedic devices and has used computer modeling with 3D printing to percutaneously correct complex fractures and angular limb deformities in his patients. We are proud to provide our clients with the orthopedic expertise of the extremely accomplished and renowned Dr. Albert Lynch.
