This two-day workshop with give attendees confidence in identifying and treating cases of carpal and tarsal derangement within their own practice. They will develop decision making skills to help ascertain when arthrodesis is appropriate and learn how to manage possible complications.

In the morning lectures, participants will gain confidence identifying cases they can treat themselves versus those that should be referred for “someone else’s headache”. In the afternoon, attendees will have the opportunity to practice performing arthrodesis on cadavers.

This is an advanced veterinary orthopaedics course. It assumes a working knowledge of; bone healing, fracture biomechanics, approach to the trauma patient, orthopaedic surgical principles and the application of standard orthopaedic implants. If you would like to know more about these topics we recommend our introductory orthopaedic course, “Principles in Fracture Management”.
