Dr. Tim Sellmeyer is a graduate of Central Methodist University in Fayette, Missouri, where he earned a BS in Biology. Dr. Sellmeyer received his DVM from the University of Missouri-Columbia (2002). He then completed an internship at Kansas State University, followed by surgical residency at Mission MedVet in Kansas City. Dr. Sellmeyer particularly enjoys the challenges of orthopedics, especially fracture fixation. He became a board certified surgeon in 2007.
When not practicing, Tim loves to snow ski, backpack, cycle, watch baseball, fish and brew beer (not necessarily in that order). When time and schedules permit, he also enjoys volunteering at various non-profits: ARF, Oakland Animal Services, Valley Humane Society, and East Bay SPCA. He is the proud owner of a rescued German shorthaired pointer. Dr. Sellmeyer was drawn to veterinary medicine both by his interest in biology and science and by his physician sister who he felt was studying very cool stuff. He charted his own path to veterinary medicine and his many patients are relieved that he did.
