Fix the Face: Brachycephalic and Ear Surgery Workshop
When is surgery indicated and which surgical technique is appropriate? Surgical conditions of the head and neck present a challenge to most veterinarians yet more and more patients need this care due to the popularity of brachycephalic breeds. This workshop will help you improve your surgical techniques and is also a useful adjunct to preparations for membership examinations. Develop your skills in an intimate and supportive environment with specialist tutors and feel confident approaching these cases in practice.
Do you struggle with…
- How much should be removed to improve the nares opening?
- Confidence to perform soft palate surgery?
- Patients with persistent ear disease who seem to have been on every possible medication available with no positive outcome?
What if there was a way you could offer your brachycephalic patients the preventative care they didn’t know they needed?

Perform your own folded flap or soft palate resection with specialist educators right by your side. Practice placing trach tubes, oesophagostomy tubes, performing TECA and bulla osteotomy.
