10th January, 2018 14h33
Southfields Veterinary Specialists has appointed a double-diplomate in veterinary cardiology and small animal internal medicine to its growing team of specialists.
Domingo Casamian-Sorrosal will join the leading Essex referral centre as head of cardiopulmonary service at the start of next month.
After qualifying in Zaragoza, in his native Spain, Domingo completed an internship and several years in practice in the UK, before joining the University of Bristol small animal hospital as a resident.
He then completed a three-year training programme in small animal internal medicine, followed by a four-year programme in cardiology to become a diplomate and specialist in veterinary cardiology (RCVS) and small animal internal medicine (ECVIM).
After being appointed as head of cardiology and respiratory medicine at Bristol, Domingo joined Dick White Referrals before his move to Southfields.
The appointment of Domingo, soon after the arrival of one of Europe’s leading cancer experts in Jérôme Benoît, is the latest step in Southfields’ significant expansion and development plan.
Domingo said: “I’m delighted to be joining such a progressive and forward-thinking practice as Southfields. It is clear everyone at the practice is dedicated to continuing its growth and dedication to providing the highest possible level of care.
“I’m looking forward to bringing my experience and expertise to an already highly impressive team.”
Southfields’ operations manager Daniel Hogan said: “The arrival of Domingo adds another hugely talented specialist to our growing team of experts. He is, without doubt, at the top of his profession and his passion and dedication are traits which will fit perfectly at Southfields as we continue to grow.”
Domingo is also a visiting lecturer in cardiology and respiratory medicine at the Catholic University of Valencia, while he is an active clinical researcher and has published widely in many areas of cardiology and respiratory medicine. His areas of special interest are arrhythmias and interventional cardiology.
Part of the growing Linnaeus Group, Southfields is carrying out a full refurbishment of its existing Essex facilities and greatly extending its premises and staff, as well as installing new equipment.
As the transition progresses, an MRI suite and dedicated cat ward will be created, endoscopy equipment will be significantly broadened and improved, while X-ray and chemotherapy facilities will be fully refurbished.
