Are you interested in developing skills in a focused arthroplasty workshop that is immediately applicable to general practice? The VetPrac Patella & Stifle Surgery workshop provides hands-on skill development, and if you value the return on your CE investments, this is the course for you! This VetPrac workshop will provide Veterinarians with an exclusive opportunity to develop and practice modern and established techniques in cruciate repair. With unprecedented access to elite surgical training equipment, you will have the chance to practice techniques like the tibial transposition osteotomy in conjunction with your MPL repair. Advance your skills and help your patients better than before.

Do you struggle with…

  • How to approach a small bone patella resection?
  • When to perform a tibial tuberosity transposition?
  • Reducing post-op complications?

What if there was a workshop with hands-on wet labs that was dedicated to luxating patella and stifle surgery?

You can start your journey into orthopaedic surgeries or simply hone your techniques for better patient outcomes. Learn how to approach and perform a TTT with confidence. With the ability to take post-op radiographs at the workshop, you will get specialist feedback to help further refine your next surgery. Develop your skills in the art of rectifying patella luxation and choosing the right cases for success as you start to grow your skills.
