Gastrointestinal Surgery Seminar | Centre for Veterinary Education

Gastrointestinal Surgery Seminar

Spend the day exploring common and uncommon surgical conditions and reviewing current techniques of the gastrointestinal tract of the dog and cat.

Phil Moses has an impeccable educational pedigree – as you will see from reading his extensive bio. Combine this with a wonderful down-to-earth personality and a great sense of humour, and what you get is one full day jam-packed with all the GI tips and tricks Phil has garnered during his extensive career.

Phil will explain his technique for attaining maximum results when dealing with small intestinal foreign bodies and enterectomy techniques – very important to the practising vet as this involves invasive surgical procedures.

Likewise, vets will benefit from learning Phil’s techniques and approaches when conducting surgery of the colon, a very difficult site due to its high bacterial content and segmental blood supply.

Make no mistake – this will be a challenging day of education delivered by one of Australia’s eminent veterinary surgeons. Not only will you learn an enormous amount from a man dedicated to improving the veterinary profession, you’ll have a lot of fun doing it!

Here's what others have said who have previously attended his seminar:
