More About The Speaker

Dr. James Giles is a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel who spent 18 years as a military veterinarian serving across the globe, including a year in Afghanistan. His final position with the military was as Chief of Surgery for the Military Working Dog Veterinary Service. Dr. Giles grew up raising and training German shepherd dogs, and it was his experience with their medical conditions and an overall love for animals that drew him to veterinary medicine.

Dr. Giles is experienced in a variety of surgical procedures. He enjoys arthroscopy and laparoscopy and is particularly interested in orthopedic and neurologic conditions in working dogs, especially surgical management of degenerative lumbosacral stenosis. While serving as a military veterinary surgeon, he became experienced in performing endodontic repairs and advanced dentistry. He also introduced the use of negative pressure wound therapy for use in military working dogs and treated the first dogs in combat with this modality. As a surgical resident, his research involved biomechanical analysis of suture anchors and suture materials.
