This three day comprehensive course is designed for general practitioners or specialists interested in learning basic techniques for stifle arthroscopic exploration and minimally-invasive techniques for treatment of cranial cruciate ligament disease, meniscal tears, medial patella tracking and collateral ligament tears.

This course will teach techniques using traditional arthrotomy, arthroscopy, and arthroscopic-assisted arthrotomy. Building arthroscopic skills by way of arthroscopic-assisted arthrotomy is a valuable method of rapidly acquiring arthroscopic skills which can help a junior arthroscopist and is easy to learn. This technique involves placement of an arthroscope into a mini-arthrotomy which allows rapid intra-articular assessment including cruciate ligament tears, meniscal tears and other pathology. After the skills are acquired using this technique, the surgeon can progress to traditional arthroscopy.

Arthroscopy is superior to traditional arthrotomy in that it provides better visualization, magnification, and better surgical precision. The course will involve the use of cadavers for all laboratory procedures. The course aims to prepare general practitioners and surgeons to diagnose and treat a variety of intra-articular conditions.
