Lieven graduated from Ghent University in Belgium and subsequently started working at the department of surgery and anaesthesiology of large animals at the same university. His initial focus was on large animal anaesthesia and bovine surgery. Since 1997, he further specialized in equine surgery with a special interest in URT surgery and equine dentistry. This resulted in completion of a PhD thesis on postextraction changes in the equine dentition and membership of ECVS following an alternate residency program. He currently is an associate lecturer in large animal soft tissue surgery and dentistry at Ghent University.
His ongoing research topics include several equine dentistry subjects including tooth implant development, orthodontics and mastication physiology.
