The proper surgical approach is the first step in a successful orthopedic procedure. The correct technique during the approach can lead to better visualization, easier surgery, shorter surgery times, less tissue trauma and less morbidity. With close guidance from a board-certified veterinary orthopedic surgeon, you will review and practice the correct approach to the hip and stifle joints. In addition, you’ll perform a femoral head and neck ostectomy (FHO), one option to treat dogs that have hip dysplasia, coxofemoral luxation, hip osteoarthritis, femoral head or neck fractures, or severe acetabular fractures. Accurate surgical execution of an FHO is essential for a positive outcome. Participants may find it helpful to review pertinent anatomy before attending this course.
