Course Dates: 2/10/2020 – 2/11/2020 | Each day the course begins at 8:00a ends at 5:00p
Skill Level: General
TPLO has become a favorite technique of general and specialty veterinarians to treat CrCL tears in all sizes of dogs. TPLO stabilizes the stifle by eliminating cranial tibial thrust. TPLO is an excellent technique for treating partial and complete tears of the CrCL. This 2-day interactive course includes lectures and laboratories to teach participants the theory and method of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO). Participants will perform TPLOs on plastic bones and cadavers using state of the art equipment and implants. Participants will use locking plate technology to simplify, increase precision and reduce complications of the procedure. Participants should have a basic knowledge of anatomy and surgical approach to the stifle and principles of bone plate application. Post-operative radiographs will be taken to assess the participant’s repair technique. Post-operative management will also be discussed.
