Timothy James

Chief of Surgery for MEAC

Dr. Timothy James has been involved in various aspects of the medical field throughout his life.  In college, he studied tick borne diseases and illness of muscle proteins and was considering a career researching infectious diseases.  During his undergraduate years, he shadowed several veterinarians and decided that working with small animals would be his new career path.  Dr. James graduated from the University of Georgia, earning his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2003.  From that point on, he was immersed in surgery and emergency medicine.  He started his career at a large specialty practice in Indianapolis where he also completed a residency through the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners.  During that time, he also became a certified canine rehabilitation therapist.   After several years in Indianapolis, Dr. James moved to Tennessee, working at the Regional Institute for Veterinary Emergency and Referrals.  It is at that facility where completed a surgical residency program over several years. Dr. James was most recently a staff surgeon at North Georgia Veterinary Specialists.  He has special interests in surgery of the spine and orthopedics; however, Dr. James also excels in soft tissue surgery.
