Hip luxation is the most frequently reported joint luxation in small animal practice, usually resulting from trauma or severe hip dysplasia. This highly practical workshop is designed to improve your understanding of the anatomy of the hip joint and to teach you techniques required to surgically manage patients with hip luxation with confidence.
Delegates will have the opportunity for hands-on practice of the taught techniques on cadavers in the afternoon wet-lab. At the conclusion, delegates should feel confident in managing patients with hip luxation.
