Endoscopy, - Small Animal Laparoscopy and Thoracoscopy (with workshop), Beichlingen / Germany, 7 - 11 March 2018 registration open

Principal Course Master: Dr. Philip Lhermette (UK)
Course Master: Dr. Elise Robertson, DABVP (UK)


OVERVIEW

The 2018 minimally invasive surgery course – Laparoscopy and Thoracoscopy is designed for clinicians with no or basic skills in rigid endoscopy. Selection and care of instruments required for basic and more advanced procedures in both dogs and cats will be covered, as well as using the equipment to broaden the range of procedures that can be performed in first opinion practice with special reference to the 2.7mm multipurpose endoscope. Laparoscopic ovariectomy and ovariohysterectomy in the dog and cat will be discussed in detail. Classroom teaching on all aspects of minimally invasive surgery, starting from indications to complications, procedures and possible findings will be followed almost daily by a practical dry lab with laparoscopic trainers and wet labs with cadavers and live piglets.
Please note: this endoscopy course is very practical oriented and thanks to the Sponsor Karl Storz, Germany between 5 and 6 tables are available for each practical course element so delegates have ample time to practice. The number of delegates is limited to 18 so this will enhance the learning effect.
