Εκεί ξεκίνησε και τη διδακτορική του διατριβή με γενικό θέμα " μεταμόσχευση ήπατος σε επίμυες ". Κατόπιν επέστρεψε στην Ελλάδα, όπου και υπηρέτησε τη στρατιωτική του θητεία. Το 1998 πραγματοποίησε τον υποχρεωτικό χρόνο υπηρεσίας υπαίθρου. Το 1999 υπηρέτησε ως ειδικευόμενος στη Χειρουργική Κλινική Μεταμοσχεύσεων του Αριστοτελείου Πανεπιστημίου. Τη χρονιά αυτή ολοκλήρωσε και υπερασπίστηκε τη διδακτορική του διατριβή για την οποία βαθμολογήθηκε με " άριστα ".

Στη συνέχεια μετακόμισε στο Montreal του Καναδά όπου έλαβε το 2007 από το Πανεπιστήμιο McGill τον τίτλο του ειδικού χειρουργού " Ήπατος, Χοληφόρων, Παγκρέατος και Μεταμοσχεύσεων ". Στο τέλος της ίδιας χρονιάς επέστρεψε πίσω στην Ελλάδα.

Ο χειρουργός Διονύσης Βροχίδης έχει εκτελέσει περισσότερες από 3500 επεμβάσεις ύστερα από την αποφοίτησή του από την Ιατρική Σχολή.
