2019 ACVS Surgery Summit
Open to all audiences
Designed for the general practitioner who wants to enhance his or her efficiency and efficacy in performing any surgical procedure. Techniques covered include streamlined suturing mechanics, application of stents, proper undermining and walking sutures, mass removal with appropriate margins, closing oddly-shaped wounds, elimination of dog-ears, sliding advancement flaps, releasing incisions, and the use of drains and wound diffusion catheters. Learn from board certified surgeons the tips and tricks that were not taught in veterinary school. With the hands-on practice (on models and cadavers) and individual feedback you receive in this laboratory, you will fine-tune the fundamentals and expand the repertoire of techniques you can confidently offer to your patients, making surgery more fun and rewarding. (This laboratory is a good precursor to Precision and Confidence in Abdominal Surgery).
