MA VetMB DSAS(ST) MRCVS RCVS Recognised Specialist in Small Animal Surgery (Soft Tissue)

Tim Charlesworth
Specialist Soft Tissue Referral Service

Tim qualified from Cambridge University in 2001 and after 18 months in mixed practice joined Eastcott in 2003. Tim gained the RCVS Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2006 and then completed an "alternate route residency” towards the RCVS diploma in small animal, soft tissue surgery (DSAS-ST). Tim passed the diploma exams in 2012 becoming the first vet from general practice to gain this qualification which is widely regarded as the highest level of specialist qualification in this field. Tim became an RCVS recognised specialist in 2013 and now works purely as a referral soft tissue surgeon and is particularly interested in minimally invasive surgery, advanced wound reconstruction, ENT and oncological surgeries. Tim is a committee member of the Association for Veterinary Soft Tissue Surgery (AVSTS) and is a current examiner for the RCVS CertAVP (small animal surgery) exams.

Tim actively contributes to the veterinary literature and also helps review new submissions to some peer-reviewed journals.
