Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

Read Raúl M. Galván bio

I qualified at Cordoba University (Spain). and moved to the UK in 2007 and have been working as a surgeon ever since, performing a great variety of soft tissue and orthopaedic surgeries in small animals. Since moving to the UK I have enjoyed many holidays in Cornwall and I decided this was the best place for me to settle and raise my young family.  I hold an AVP certificate in surgery, my special interest is orthopaedic and minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery. My compassion for my patients is what drives me to deliver high standards of service and care to our patients whilst looking after their best interests.
