Duane Robinson, DVM, PhD, DACVS-SA


Specialist, Board Certified in Veterinary Surgery-Small Animal

On The Job

Dr. Duane Robinson is excited to be part of the BluePearl team in North Seattle bringing over ten years of experience in surgery. He joined BluePearl after a number of years as an assistant professor at both the University of California, Davis and Louisiana State University. At both universities, he focused primarily on orthopedic surgery; however, since joining BluePearl he has enjoyed a return to soft tissue procedures. Dr. Robinson also has extensive experience in minimally invasive procedures in patients of all sizes.

Extensively published and often invited to speak at conferences around the world and other educational events, Duane is passionate about educating others. He has served on the editorial review board for the journal Veterinary Surgery, and as a member of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons Continuing Education Committee as the Chair of Scientific Presentations.

Dr. Robinson’s research focus has been on complications associated with veterinary orthopedic implant infections and evaluating differing implant properties with the goal of reducing infection.
