Date 
Sep. 14-15, 2020

Location 
Town and Country San Diego, 500 Hotel Circle N, San Diego, California, USA 92108

Description 
This 2-day seminar brings together interested surgeons in practice, surgeons in training and recognized leaders in equine orthopedic surgery from North America. Through the use of lectures and case discussions, less commonly used locations for arthrodesis procedures and other complex cases requiring arthrodesis will be presented. Current state of the art techniques will be presented. This format allows significant involvement of the participants through close interaction with the faculty and presentation of their own problem cases. Goals of this seminar are to have the participants leave with a greater understanding of the current techniques available for arthrodesis in the horse along with improving their patient outcomes. The Equine Arthrodesis Seminar is part of the AOVET Equine Masters Course Series. Surgeons in practice and surgeons in training who wish to increase their proficiency in current arthrodesis techniques should plan to attend. The focus of this course will be on arthrodesis in locations not covered in the Principles or Advanced Techniques in Equine Fracture Repair courses. It will also include discussion of difficult aspects or cases of more common arthrodesis locations. Participants are encouraged to bring their own cases of arthrodesis in horses since ample time will be provided for the use of cases brought by the faculty and participants as a means to illustrate important principles of arthrodesis and help generate general discussion.
