Job Details

Part-time orthopaedic surgeon - Bristol

  • East bristol
  • Competitive salary commensurate with experience
  • Fernlea Orthopaedics
  • Independent Practice

We are looking for an experienced orthopaedic surgeon to help with our referral caseload. This is a great opportunity to joint our friendly, independent, 6-vet 2-centre first opinion and orthopaedic referral practice.

The position is for two days per week orthopaedic surgery, with the possibility of an additional third day of soft tissue surgery. This is a new role and has the potential to expand over time.

Ideally you should be experienced and confident with a wide range of orthopaedic procedures. However the caseload can be tailored somewhat to the surgeon. A solid basis in cruciate & patellar surgeries and fracture repair is essential. The role would suit an experienced Advanced Practitioner, but all applicants will be considered.

The orthopaedic referral service is very well established, with a busy caseload from referring practices with whom we have an excellent relationship.

We are well equipped with a comprehensive range of implant systems and Arthrex power tools & arthroscopy equipment.

No on-call or weekends. Excellent location on the edge of Bristol and close to Bath and the surrounding countryside.


Our clinics, first established in 1986 at Blackhorse Road in Kingswood have now become a well recognised provider of quality veterinary care to the local Bristol pet population.

We have fully equipped operating theatres at both Hanham and Kingswood. We believe patient safety to be a priority and thus we use the most up to date inhalation anaesthetic equipment. During anaesthesia all patients are monitored throughout their operation with our modern Airway Gas and Pulsoximeter monitors. These constantly measure oxygen, carbon dioxide levels, and pulse rate. Blood pressure is also monitored where applicable. All sterile procedures ranging from neuterings to orthopaedic and abdominal surgery are carried out at both our clinics. Minor procedures, such as dentistry are undertaken in separate dedicated clinical areas.
