Additional anaesthesia Specialist joins NDSR


We are pleased to welcome Rui Pinealas to the team at NDSR. Rui joins our anaesthesia service expanding our team and helping ensure all our patients have the safest anaesthesia, sedation and optimal pain relief.

Rui graduated from the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro (UTAD), Portugal in 2003. After two years in general practice he joined the surgery service of the same university, where he developed a special interest in anaesthesia and analgesia. In 2008, Rui started a three year residency in the same area at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) where, in 2011, he also obtained his Masters in Veterinary Medicine. After a brief period back in UTAD, he re-joined the team at the RVC in 2014 as a Staff Clinician in Anaesthesia.

Rui obtained his European Diploma in Anaesthesia and Analgesia in 2014 and became an RCVS recognised Specialist in Anaesthesia in 2016. His main interests are regional analgesia and cardiac anaesthesia.
