PGR Training

Essential for managing the full spectrum of patellar luxation

PGR is a promising advancement for the care of canine patello-femoral degenerative joint disease. Conventional treatments remain effective for patients with grade 1 – 2 patella luxation. For more complex scenarios, those combining multiple deformities or subsequent to trauma, the PGR has proven extremely effective.

The surgical technique is deceptively simple, but it requires that surgeons make a thorough evaluation of the entire hind limb. The PGR Course is available as a dry lab or wet and dry lab course. Both courses contain lectures on background, planning, surgical technique, clinical experience and complications. The Wet lab version of the course includes surgical planning; each attendee performs a PGR, and participates in a lab review discussion.

Course Requirements

KYON PGR Training is appropriate for veterinary surgeons with well-rounded orthopedic experience, knowledgeable in fracture plating, corrective osteotomies and/or TPLO/TTA techniques. Complications are minimal, usually related to technical errors, and easily avoided with comprehensive instruction and modest practice. Your OR and hospital should be suitable for orthopedic surgery, including joint replacement.

Some surgeons/clinics will have more preparation to do than others. We are happy to discuss your specific circumstances and chart a path.

KYON PGR Training is available in two formats:

Basic Course w/ dry lab — 1 day
Basic Course w/ dry and wet lab — 1 day
