KYON Symposium 2007

Innovations in Veterinary Orthopedics and Trauma

 
Welcome to the first KYON Symposium. Our goal is to provide a forum for addressing advancements, adaptations, issues and complications in veterinary orthopedic procedures. We also hope to foster some spirited dialogue and exchange of ideas.

In addition to a dynamic international faculty of human and veterinary orthopedic opinion leaders who will be presenting, there are attendees from 17 different countries and several international universities. We encourage you to share your experiences and learn from each other. We hope you find the meeting informative, provocative, and entertaining.

Each KYON Symposium gives a glimpse into our ongoing research and development in the area of veterinary orthopedic surgery. This year’s meeting will spotlight the KYON Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA), the KYON Advanced Locking Plate System (ALPS), KYON MINI Suture Anchors, and a first look at KYON Suture systems.

Stifle, hip and fracture repair systems have made major advances in recent decades, but surgeons and their patients are still troubled by difficult cases, adverse events, and less than ideal outcomes. KYON is committed to providing the veterinary orthopedic community with the best possible implants and instruments. We are continuously improving our products based on clinical experience and feedback from our users.

Thank you for your interest in furthering the art and practice of veterinary orthopedic surgery.
