RACE Approved CE Hours: 22.75 hours

Course Description: 

We get it … not all clients are willing or able to accept a referral for fracture repair, but …   

  • Are you tired of amputating limbs that you think you could learn to repair? 
  • Do you have difficulty approaching or reducing long bone fractures?    
  • Are you interested in learning simple techniques designed for the general practitioner to stabilize the most common fractures seen in dogs and cats?   

This hands-on CE training is the one for you!  We will use a combination of easy-to-understand didactic lectures and extensive, practical hands-on lab training with plastic bone models and cadavers to teach you reliable techniques for stabilizing simple and comminuted long bone fractures. Postoperative radiographs will be made to evaluate and discuss your repair technique with our helpful and supportive orthopedic experts.  New implant designs and practical tips from our teaching faculty will make your fracture management simpler and more affordable than ever!  Identification and management of postoperative complications will be discussed along with preventative strategies.  

You’ll return to your practice willing and able to save the limbs and the lives of your patients for whom referral to a specialist simply isn’t an option.
