Workshop Description

Since the introduction of Tibial Plateau-Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO), no other procedure has impacted the veterinary orthopedic field as significantly as TPLO. Barclay Slocum’s TPLO redefined the expectations for standard of care in cruciate repair, giving surgeons the capacity to return patients to fully active life.

The TPLO surgical technique is an advanced orthopedic procedure. Success requires not only proper planning and execution of the TPLO procedure but also competence in evaluation of the entire hind limb, joint inspection and soft tissue reconstruction.

This TPLO Workshop is offered as dry lab workshop. The workshop contains lectures on background, planning, surgical technique, clinical experience and complications, and surgeons can practice the TPLO procedure on a bone model.

Included in the workshop booking is enrollment in an online introductory course that provides relevant information about the TPLO system, indications for TPLO, pre- and post-operative care, and the surgical technique.


Top reasons why participants take a KYON TPLO workshop:

  • TPLO is a widely accepted in the veterinary field to correct CCL tears.
  • Offering TPLO enhances the level of care a practice can provide to their patients.
  • Participants want to increase their veterinary skill set and knowledge.

  • Strengthen your network with other professionals and instructors.
  • KYON provides supplementary documentation before and after the course.

Workshop Objectives
