Event Cancelled

As part of a global healthcare organization, we believe we have a responsibility to contribute to global efforts to contain and minimize the spread of COVID-19, as well as protect our associates and yours. With this in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Securos University – Boston wet labs, originally scheduled for September 11-12, 2021. 

We recognize that this disruption will come as disappointing news. We will be processing full refunds within the next week. Please contact Kelly Nix at university@securos.scom with any questions.

We place a high importance on bringing together this valued group of practitioners that have made a continued commitment to Securos University and look forward to the time in which we can come together in-person.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have. Thank you for your understanding and support!

Patellar Luxation Correction

Online Lecture & Wet Lab

This course includes two parts and is designed for the veterinarian who wishes to learn/refine the techniques of correction of patellar luxation with emphasis on medial patellar luxation. Specific components of the surgical procedure taught will be block recession trochleoplasty, tibial tuberosity transposition, medial release, and lateral imbrication including tips that aren’t in any of the textbooks!
 
Part One of this course is a pre-recorded online lecture that includes a comprehensive discussion of the pathophysiology of patellar luxation, physical examination tips and pointers for radiographic assessment. Step-by-step surgical assessment and treatment will be presented including tips for special challenges as concurrent patellar luxation and cranial cruciate ligament disease. Postoperative care and monitoring will be presented.
 
Part Two of this course is a hands-on workshop. The medial patella correction techniques will be demonstrated in a step-by-step fashion using high resolution video and practiced on canine cadavers under faculty supervision. On-site digital radiography available for post-op critiques.
 
The online lecture will be available for 30 days before the hands-on wet lab. The online lecture includes the following modules:
