Masterclass in Tibial Plateau Levelling Osteotomy (TPLO)

This highly practical two day Masterclass will be dedicated to understanding and performing TPLO surgery.

Day 1 - half of the first day will be spent on theory and half on plastic bone exercises and templating.

Day 2 will be dedicated entirely to cadaver surgery exercises including taking and assessing post-operative radiographs of the cadaver surgeries.  These radiographs will be carefully critiqued to learn from errors and minimise surgical inaccuracies in the future.
