About Warren

Warren Schofield is a European Specialist Veterinary Surgeon working in Ireland. He has previously lectured at University College Dublin, and been a partner at Troytown Equine Hospital in County Kildare.  Warren specialises in surgery and orthopaedics, particularly racehorse and high performance horse orthopaedics. He developed the novel idea of standing fracture repair in horses, and led the surgical team which performed the first ever reported procedures of internal fixation of fractures in racehorses in the standing position.  This method avoids the relatively high risks of general anaesthesia and recovery from the recumbent position. This technique is now practised all over the world and has resulted in a significant improvement in the management of many types of fractures, and thereby a significant improvement in the welfare of these horses. He has a wide range of scientific publications including the subjects of horse welfare, colic surgery, reproductive tract surgery, and orthopaedics. He contributes regularly to Irish and international veterinary conferences. He became an independent surgeon in 2020 and now performs equine surgery around the island of Ireland, including at University College Dublin, where he assists in the training of students and resident veterinary surgeons in equine surgery and orthopaedics. His main surgery location is Lisadell Equine Hospital in County Meath.
