This course covers a variety of topics surrounding fracture repairs for internal and external fixation systems. Covering topics such as screws, plates, fracture diagnosis, and repair as well as bone healing, this varied course offers a perfect introduction into veterinary orthopaedics.
This introductory 1 day workshop is ideal for surgeons with little or no experience in using plates and screws and combines a morning of theory and an afternoon of practical, applying the methods learned in the morning to a variety of bone models.
