Dr. Robert Ostrowski graduated from a Polish Veterinary School in Wroclaw in 1982. Shortly after he graduated, he and his family immigrated to Canada. After working in general practice for 5 years, he decided to open his own veterinary hopsital and in 1998 Nepean Animal Hospital opened its doors. The practice grew over the years and in 2004, he opened Chapman Mills Animal Hospital. Dr Ostrowski provides services in abdominal ultrasound and upper and lower GI endoscopies. He enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, but he is well-known in the city for his exceptional level of skill with complex surgeries. For over a decade now, Dr Ostrowski has been repairing canine, and even the occasional feline, knee. In 2015, he went on a course in Tightrope Cruciate Ligament Repair Surgery. He uses a variety of Arthrex anchors (Tightrope, mini Tightrope, SwiveLock, and FasTak) to stabilize the ruptured CCL. After over 20 years of building a highly successful practice, Dr. Ostrowski handed the keys over to his long-time associate, Dr. Jones. This has allowed him to continue practicing veterinary medicine, but spend more time at the beautiful timber log cottage he built almost entirely on his own. If you can’t find him at work, he’s almost certainly working on improvement to his cottage, working-out, or fishing on the lake.
