Tomas Infernuso, DVM, DACVS (Small Animal)


Animal Surgical Center

I strive to provide the highest quality of advanced surgical care by strictly adhering to accepted standards for the treatment of animals. As a result, I, along with local veterinary hospitals, am able to give pets the absolute best veterinary care.

As a member of your family, your pet deserves nothing less than the best care available. My commitment to having the most advanced technology is unrivaled. My priority, however, lies with giving you and your family all the support you need – through communication, care and compassion.

I am highly trained and experienced in providing prompt and intensive management of patients with life-threatening conditions and those requiring extraordinary supportive care. My multi-disciplinary approach and close cooperation allows me to offer the best care available to the patients entrusted to me. I am committed to using science, technology and compassion to provide exceptional care for pets and their families.

My caseload encompasses patients with a wide range of orthopedic, neurologic, oncologic (cancer), thoracic, and soft tissue problems. I am available for surgery, consultation, assistance with difficult surgical cases, or when the use of specialized surgical equipment or techniques is required. My combined effort allows me to confer on patient management, to be readily available for trauma or other emergency referrals, and to further expand our own surgical subspecialties. My practice is equipped with the latest specialized instrumentation and equipment. The safest anesthetic agents are used, and patients are continuously monitored throughout anesthesia. Experienced, registered veterinary technicians and a well-trained technical support staff play a key role in perioperative intensive care. Patient care is provided 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. Your pet deserves exceptional care. 

Jill K. Luther, DVM, MS, DACVS (Small Animal)

Assistant Teaching Professor of Small Animal Surgery

University of Missouri

Dr. Luther is an assistant teaching professor of small animal surgery at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Luther is a graduate of Southwest Missouri State University who received her DVM from the University of Missouri. She completed a rotating small animal internship at the animal medical center in New York and returned to MU as the Robert B. Gordon Research Fellow at the comparative orthopaedic laboratory for one year. She completed her surgical residency and MS in Veterinary Clinical Sciences at the University of Missouri in 2010. From there, she performed orthopedic, soft-tissue, and neurosurgery in private practice in St. Louis for four years before returning to MU to specialize in soft-tissue surgery in 2014.

Dr. Luther’s primary clinical interests include minimally invasive surgery and urinary tract surgery. Her greatest strength in teaching lies in the applied, practical application of surgery. Her experience in private practice and academia lends well to marrying gold-standard practices with real-world application.

Dr. Luther’s non-clinical interests have evolved into helping others recognize and combat compassion fatigue and stay committed to veterinary medicine through a course she co-coordinated called the Healer’s Art. Additionally, she has coordinated and transformed the orientation process into an experiential platform taking the students from the classroom to the clinics. She is an ambassador for female specialists refusing to accept the status quo.

Jennifer L. Wardlaw, DVM, MS, DACVS (Small Animal)

 Dr. Wardlaw is a St. Louis native. Her family has lived in St Louis for over six generations. After attending St. Joseph’s Academy for high school, she traveled around the globe for her education. She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona, during which she studied at Sidney University through an abroad program with Butler University. Her doctorate of veterinary medicine was completed at the University of Missouri in 2004, where she fell in love with small animal surgery. She completed a rotating small animal internship at Mississippi State University in 2005, and they’ve kept her in the south since then. She stayed there for her small animal surgical residency and master of science and became an assistant professor. During her tenure at Mississippi State, she helped start and run their physical rehabilitation service. Dr. Wardlaw became board certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2009. She was most recently living in Charleston, South Carolina, as the head of surgery and director of sports medicine and physical rehabilitation. Dr. Wardlaw describes her move home to St. Louis as “meant to be.” Her biggest draw to founding Gateway Veterinary Surgery was to practice top-quality surgery for her family and friends in St. Louis.
