Dr. Tejinder P. Sharma and his wife, Dr. Sunita Rani, live in Troy, Michigan. Two beautiful dogs, Max and Macy keep them happy and busy at home. Dr. Sharma has over 30 years experience as a veterinarian. He graduated from the College of Veterinary Science in Ludhiana, India in 1988 and received his Masters degree two years later. He joined the veterinary faculty as Endocrinologist where he spent the next 5 years. In 1996 he attended the University of Western Australia for his PhD and then joined the University of Michigan for post doctoral research. He has published many research papers in peer reviewed journals. Due to his advanced training in Endocrinology, he has special interest in endocrine diseases such as hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, diabetes, Addison's and Cushing's diseases. He also enjoys performing bone surgeries for ACL injuries, luxating patella and bone fractures. For those rare, complicated surgical cases, visiting specialist surgeons are also available. Dr. Sharma believes that continuing education is vital and attends as many medical and surgical conferences, hands on training sessions and seminars as possible. He also believes in giving back, so he donates much of his time and services to many foster agencies, rescue groups and animal shelters.
