Dr. William Culp graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation from veterinary school, he remained at the University of Pennsylvania to complete a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery followed by a surgical residency. Dr. Culp is board-certified as a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons, and he has pursued additional training in cancer surgery at the Colorado State University Animal Cancer Center, during which he completed a Surgical Oncology Fellowship. Additionally, he has completed an Interventional Radiology Fellowship at the Animal Medical Center in New York City.
Dr. Culp is currently a member of the Soft Tissue Surgery service at the University of California - Davis. He is interested in many areas of soft tissue surgery, but his major focuses are surgical oncology and interventional radiology. The specialty of surgical oncology focuses on utilizing advanced surgical techniques in the treatment of cancer. Interventional radiology is a rapidly developing specialty in veterinary medicine that utilizes diagnostic imaging modalities to diagnose and treat diseases in veterinary patients in a minimally invasive manner. Combining these two specialties allows for advanced, minimally invasive treatments to be pursued for veterinary cancer and non-cancer patients.
Diseases of particular interest to Dr. Culp include malignant obstructions (cancer resulting in blockage of the urethra, trachea, esophagus, and colon), non-resectable tumors
(tumors that cannot be removed with traditional surgical techniques), tumors that can be treated with direct delivery of chemotherapy to their blood vessels, vascular abnormalities
(portosystemic shunts, arteriovenous malformations) and benign and malignant obstructions of the ureter.
After graduation from the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Carrie Palm completed a small animal rotating internship at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, followed by a three-year residency in small animal internal medicine. She is Board Certified in Small Animal Internal Medicine.
Dr. Palm practiced as a small animal internist for one year in a specialty practice, Veterinary Medical and Surgical Group in Ventura, CA. She then left private practice and completed a two-year fellowship in nephrology, hemodialysis/extracorporeal medicine and urinary medicine at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. She has since joined the faculty in Clinical Small Animal Internal Medicine at UC Davis. Dr. Palm is interested in all aspects of renal and urinary medicine, but her main focuses are acute kidney injury and ureteral obstructive disease, extracorporeal therapies (including hemodialysis, hemoperfusion and apheresis) and interventional endourology.
