TPLO Training


Long accepted, KYON TPLO integrates a more precise rationale and biological fixation


Since its introduction, no other procedure has impacted the veterinary orthopedic field as significantly as TPLO. Barclay Slocum’s TPLO redefined the expectations for standard of care in cruciate repair, giving surgeons the capacity to return large, working dogs to fully active life.

The TPLO surgical technique is an advanced orthopedic procedure. It requires that surgeons make a thorough evaluation of the entire hind limb. The TPLO Course is available as both dry and wet lab courses. Both courses contain lectures on background, planning, surgical technique, clinical experience and complications. The wet lab version of the course includes surgical planning where each attendee performs a TPLO on a cadaver and participates in a lab review discussion.

Course Requirements

KYON TPLO Training is appropriate for veterinarians with basic orthopedic experience who are knowledgeable in fracture plating, corrective osteotomies and/or TTA techniques. Your OR and hospital should be suitable for orthopedic surgery.

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

KYON TPLO Training is available in two formats:

Basic course w/ dry lab — 1 day
Basic course w/ dry and wet lab — 2 day
