RCVS Recognised Specialist in Equine Surgery
European Veterinary Specialist in Equine Surgery
Tim qualified from the University of Edinburgh in 2005. After a period in general practice, he began his career at Rossdales in early 2007, working as an orthopaedic assistant in the Diagnostic Centre. He then went on to complete an 18-month internship at the Hospital and Diagnostic Centre, before embarking on a surgical residency at the University of Edinburgh co-supervised by Rossdales. During this period he spent many months working with the surgeons at the Hospital in Exning. He has also spent time working in our Hertfordshire practice and with our Newmarket horses in training team.
In 2013 Tim was awarded an MSc with distinction from the University of Edinburgh for his work on post-operative finding in horses undergoing laryngoplasty (tie-back). In 2015 he attained the RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice and became a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons. He was awarded RCVS Specialist status in 2016 and joined the partnership at Rossdales in April 2017.
Tim spends the majority of his time working within the hospital surgical team where, as well as emergency admissions, he sees many elective dental and upper airway cases. He has presented and published a number of award winning research studies in the fields of dentistry, and upper airway surgery and diagnostics.
