This course is for ACVS diplomates and residents only.

Minimally-invasive surgery (MIS) is the standard of care for many human procedures and is increasingly the expectation of many of our more discerning pet-owning clients in progressive veterinary practices.  Now is the time for you to reach for new professional horizons and discover the many advantages of diagnostic techniques and surgical procedures. Your new skills will distinguish you and your practice within your community!

Advanced laparoscopic procedures will be detailed in in-person lectures, followed by a laboratory on canine cadavers. Simulators will be used to learn intracorporeal suturing techniques. Procedures described and performed in the laboratory will include gastropexy, adrenalectomy, cholecystectomy, nephrectomy, splenectomy, hernia repair.

At the conclusion of this course you should have the confidence and knowledge to continue your minimally invasive journey in your own practice!
