Surgery Referral Service


We are very pleased to announce that Jerry O'Riordan of VSUK (please see details at will be running a boutique Specialist Orthopaedic and Soft Tissue referral service from our Guildford practice. Jerry is a orthopaedic and soft tissue surgeon and holds a European Diploma in surgery. He will be able to take surgical referrals from the 3rd of September. This referral service is separate to our primary care Practice and we guarantee that your patient remains your patient.
In Jerry’s own words, I graduated from the UCD and did a number of years of small animal work in England immediately after graduation. I developed an interest in surgery working for a short period in the RSPCA animal hospital in Birmingham. I have worked in small animal surgical referrals in Ireland, England, Scotland, New Zealand the USA and in France. I obtained my certificate in Small Animal Surgery while working In Fitzpatrick Referrals in the South of England and following that I returned to the UCD Veterinary Hospital to complete a small animal surgical residency. Since then I have worked in the Maison Alfort Vet School in Paris and most recently in Glasgow University Small Animal Veterinary Hospital. Over the last three years I have worked in a specialist referral hospital for a large corporate practice. I felt I needed to move on as I did not believe that the patient’s best interests are served in this type of environment and I wanted a more personal approach to the clients and their pets. I want clients and vets to get better use of my approach and I want them to have personal confidence in me. I have an interest in both soft tissue surgery and orthopaedics and my long period of time working in primary care practice has given me a realistic understanding of the challenges we face as surgeons in practice.
