Kenneth Carroll

Dr. Kenny Carroll is a Sutherland Shire local and grew up in Cronulla. He obtained his veterinary degree from Charles Sturt University (Wagga Wagga), where he completed a Bachelor of Veterinary Biology/Bachelor of Veterinary Science and graduated with First Class Honours in 2017. Following veterinary school, he completed a 1-year surgical internship at the Animal Referral Hospital (ARH) in Canberra, before relocating to the United States for further specialist training. He subsequently completed a 1-year small animal rotating internship at the University of Georgia (UGA), a 3-year small animal surgical residency at North Carolina State University (NCSU), and an 18-month fellowship in minimally invasive surgery at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis).

While versed in all aspects of surgery, Kenny specialises in advanced minimally invasive soft tissue procedures such as laparoscopy and thoracoscopy, as well as interventional radiology techniques. With completion of his fellowship at UC Davis, Kenny is the only small animal surgeon in Australasia with subspecialty training in minimally invasive surgery. These keyhole procedures aim to minimise pain and complications related to surgery, while maximising patient outcomes. 

Kenny is the author of several publications in various peer-reviewed veterinary journals including Veterinary Surgery, Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Frontiers in Veterinary Science, and Australian Veterinary Journal. He speaks at national and international conferences and is an active member of the Veterinary Endoscopy Society (VES) and Veterinary Interventional Radiology and Interventional Endoscopy Society (VIRIES). Kenny is due to sit his American College of Veterinary Surgery (ACVS) specialist examinations in February 2024, and will submit his ACVS credentials for fellow status in minimally invasive surgery in March 2024.

Kenny is excited to be back home in the Shire after his training abroad and when not in the hospital, he enjoys spending quality time with his wife Yolanne and daughter Hallie.
