Are you ready to move on to the next level in cranial cruciate ligament repair? TPLOs are a great way to give your patients with CrCL tears an optimal opportunity for a positive outcome, as well as developing a tremendous profit center for your practice. More than 600 general practitioners have learned TPLO from our team of surgeons. We will bring our expert instruction directly to your practice and teach the concepts of TPLO in your own hospital setting. This interactive, hands-on course includes lectures and practical, hands-on practice 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. Course 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. Postoperative radiographs will be taken to assess the participant’s repair technique. Postoperative management will also be discussed. This course is available as a 1 or 2-day course. We highly recommend 2-days if possible.
