Hip & Stifle Workshop
Gain confidence to save it with a scalpel.
Hindlimb lameness is a very common problem presented to the general practitioner for treatment. The majority of these cases originate from the hip and stifle joints and many of these problems respond very favourably to surgical treatment.
This workshop is designed to provide a practical refresher on the common problems and treatment for the hip and stifle joints in the dog. This will be delivered as short updates illustrated with case studies followed with a hands-on laboratory session on cadavers.
The objective of the workshop is to provide the experienced practitioner with the confidence to begin extending surgical treatment options for clients, and the recent graduate with the technical skills to begin with the more common surgical procedures on the hip and stifle joints.
"I have attended this workshop on two occasions and will attend it again in the future. It is useful to hone skills and benchmark current practice in my clinic."
