Nov. 7-8 – THR; Las Vegas, US

Since 1999, the Zürich Cementless Total Hip Replacement* System has been advancing what is considered state-of-the-art in veterinary joint replacement. The current, 5th generation KYON Zürich THR system reflects truly novel approaches to addressing the most common complications of canine total hip replacement: aseptic loosening, infection, breakage, and wear. Join us to learn what makes the Zürich THR system work, how to perform canine THR and strategies for introducing this challenging and rewarding procedure into your practice.

Canine THR is most successful when the surgeon/clinic assembles a THR team, makes a serious commitment to cadaver training, has a market that can generate a consistent case load (~10/year), and conducts regular follow-up examinations.

Upon registration, online training materials will be made available. It is essential that course participants review and study these materials prior to the course.

The program will introduce the implant and instrument systems, surgical technique, clinical development and experience. Attendees will prepare a THR bone model, take special xray views pre and post op., plan and perform a complete THR on two cadaver specimens. Following each lab, instructors and attendees will review and discuss the cases.

We hope you will join us and take the first step toward raising the standard of care for your patients suffering from debilitating hip dysplasia.
