Dr Daniel James graduated as a veterinarian from the University of Sydney in 2002 and is both the son of a vet, and married to one. After graduation he worked in mixed and small animal practice in New Zealand, several Australian states and the United Kingdom before beginning the pathway to specialisation in small animal surgery.
Daniel undertook a surgical internship at the Veterinary Specialist Centre in 2010 which was followed by a three year surgery residency training position at SASH which he completed 2014.
Dan’s research interests are in orthopaedics and spinal surgery. While he used to have interests outside of work, in late 2009 they were replaced with a small baby girl when his first child was born.
Daniel and his wife now share their lives with four children, a Domestic Long Hair cat who was found stray whilst working in Queensland, and a Greyhound and Border Terrier who were both acquired needing major surgery in the first months of life.
