Patellar Luxation Part 4: Soft Tissue Tension Balancing, Surgical Instrumentation, and Postoperative Care 

15 days ago

Presenter: Ross Palmer, DVM, MS, DACVS

This program has been approved for 1 hour of continuing education credit for veterinarians and veterinary technicians in jurisdictions that recognize RACE approval.

RACE approval for this program expires on 3/10/2022. Programs are approved for two years. In order to provide up-to-date instruction and quality of content, at the end of the RACE approval period, programs are reviewed by VetBloom and the subject matter experts and may be submitted to RACE for renewal of approval.

Summary: Attendees will enjoy high resolution video footage from Dr. Palmer’s operating room as they learn about capsular release, quadriceps release, and imbrication surgical techniques. You will then benefit from Dr. P’s discussion of ‘tools of the trade’ that are useful in each component of patellar luxation corrective surgery. Finally, Dr. P (aka ‘the Patella Fella’) will provide attendees with a lively discussion of the goals and “how to” techniques of postoperative care and lifelong joint support following patellar luxation surgery.
