Soft Tissue Surgery II

Do not miss the opportunity to be taught by one of the world’s leading Soft Tissue Surgeons, Dr Howie Seim.

Howie is Professor of Small Animal Surgery at Colorado State University and is returning to Australia to share his knowledge and expertise.

In this one day workshop, Howie will demonstrate various surgical techniques using videos from live surgery, prior to participants practising those techniques in small groups.

Topics will include the below:

  • Lateral ear resection
  • Total ear canal ablation and lateral bulla osteotomy
  • Laryngeal tie-back
  • Perineal hernia repair
  • Scrotal urethrostomy
  • Anal sacculectomy

One day of teaching from Howie Seim may not be enough for you? Howie is a natural teacher – you will leave the course with many new skills and wanting more.

Howie will also be running a workshop on Saturday covering completely different surgery techniques. See the link to the workshop below. Why not take the opportunity to further your skills in Soft Tissue Surgery by making a weekend of it and attending both workshops? 

Program coming soon.
