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 wet lab workshop.

The workshop contains lectures on background, planning, surgical technique, clinical experience and complications.The practical part of the workshop consists of surgical planning and performing a TPLO procedure on a cadaver. Participates are engaged in a lab review discussion of the completed cases.

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.
