Are you unsure where to start with small animal orthopaedics? Perhaps you would like to develop your confidence indecision making and your surgical skills in the kinds of procedures that you are likely to face on a regular basis in practice. This highly practical two day course is specifically designed for you. Seminars and interactive sessions are combined with hands-on surgery sessions during which you are guided by experienced but approachable tutors. Take your newly developed confidence and skills back to your practice and apply them in fracture patients, those with cranial cruciate ligament rupture and other conditions that can be treated effectively in first opinion practice.

What you’ll learn:

  • Intramedullary pinning; introduction to ESF
  • Orthopaedic instrumentation and how to use it
  • Using cerclage and tension band wires in practice
  • Surgical approach to the hip – FHNE
  • Surgical approach to the stifle – meniscal exam
  • Lateral fabellotibial suture for CCL failure
  • Patellar luxation surgery
