This 2.5-day course is designed to teach participants the technical aspects of a variety of soft tissue and orthopedic surgery procedures. Some theory will be included in the lectures but emphasis will be placed on the technical aspects used to perform each procedure thus maximizing time in the lab.

Topics have been chosen that represent surgical conditions commonly seen in veterinary practice and include salivary gland resection, scrotal urethrostomy, chest drain placement, 10-minute gastropexy, 4-ligature splenectomy, anal sacculectomy, stifle arthrotomy, extracapsular stabilization for ruptured ACL, medial patellar luxation techniques, femoral head and neck excision, and laryngeal tie-back.

Specific feline surgery techniques will include perineal urethrostomy—a new approach, chest tube placement, esophagostomy tube placement, and femoral head and neck excision via a ventral approach.

Video of clinical case material will be used extensively throughout the laboratory to help illustrate each technique.

 

Hands-on training led by expert instructors equals enhanced proficiency and improved surgical skills. Build your confidence with accuracy and efficiency in these areas:

  • Update your knowledge on practical surgical techniques and procedures.
  • Increase confidence levels when performing various soft tissue and orthopedic surgery procedures.
  • Gain a better knowledge of the regional anatomy related to each surgical procedure.
  • Better understand how to perform each surgical technique through extensive use of video case examples coupled with hands-on laboratory practice.
  • Realize that many soft tissue and orthopedic surgery procedures are possible to perform in practice
