KYON Symposium 2014


Innovations in Veterinary Orthopedics and Trauma

The eighth KYON Symposium will be held this April 25 – 27, 2014, in Zürich, Switzerland. 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 will be attendees from various 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.

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.
