Meet Dr. Stan Veytsman


"Dr. Stan" is a Moldavian-American and spent the majority of his early life growing up in Brooklyn, NY. He moved to the sunny island of Grenada, West Indies to complete his veterinary education at St. George's University and graduated Cum Laude in 2014. It was during this time he harbored his passion for small animal surgery, being part of the surgery club and awarded the team and individual surgery awards.

He continued his education by finishing his clinical year at Auburn University before heading onto a rotating medicine and surgery internship in Nashville, TN. Dr. Stan continued to hone his skills as a surgeon with internships in Cincinnati, Ohio; Columbia, SC; and Ottawa, Canada (with a focus on surgical oncology).

Dr. Stan then went on to complete a three-year small animal surgery residency at the University of Minnesota with a focus on orthopedics, neurosurgery, soft tissue surgery, and surgical oncology. As a resident, he presented at the Society of Veterinary Soft Tissue Surgeons Conference in 2020 as well as the Veterinary Society of Surgical Oncology Conference in 2021.

Dr. Stan has attended both human and veterinary surgery continuing education courses throughout his training to sharpen his knowledge base. His professional interests include maxillofacial surgery, arthroscopy, minimally invasive surgery, orthopedic and traumatology surgery, wound care, vacuum-assisted closures, 3D printing, and surgical oncology with reconstruction.

His fondest memories during residency included training students and interns, helping students or interns with research publications, and assisting his resident-mates with complicated surgical cases.

Outside of work, Dr. Stan enjoys watching and attending professional sporting events (go Yankees!), playing outdoor basketball, mixed martial arts, and anything to do with the ocean. He has also found a new love in Pickle Ball.

He is happy to continue his professional career in South Carolina and is supported by his wife, Dr. Kristy (also a veterinarian), and two dogs - Miles (a Boston Terrier) and Otis (a Frenchton).
