Grafts, Flaps & Complex Wounds
Every millimetre of wound closure counts. Sometimes, however, simple closure techniques are not enough.
This workshop builds on everyday wound management skills and offers personalised surgical tuition to all participants. With a refresher on critical wound theory and over 7 hours of surgical practice time, attendees will cover wound tension and skin stretching, then learn how to perform advanced techniques like skin grafts and subdermal plexus flaps.
This course is suitable for registered veterinarians with moderate soft tissue surgical experience and an interest in accidental and surgical wound closure.
Surgical wound management in clinical practice
- Wound assessment that changes the way you treat accidental wounds
- How to use the body’s healing processes to speed up wound closure
- When you can push for a few more millimetres of closure (& when you shouldn’t)
- What to do when primary healing is out of the question
- Making the most of all available closure options
- Making skin flaps & skin grafts part of your toolkit in general practice
This workshop will change the way you do things
At this workshop, you’ll fine-tune your wound assessment skills in a way that changes your treatment choices and allows you to give realistic expectations to your clients. This skill alone could be the difference between primary closure, and waiting weeks for second intention healing. The program also covers all the topics you expect to see in a wound management course including first aid, bandaging methods and products available, and how to identify the warning signs that breakdown is imminent.
The highlight of this workshop is the personalised advice and feedback you receive from our team of specialist educators. This is your chance to watch, learn, and perform a range of advanced surgical techniques from three veterinary speicalists, all in the same two-day workshop.

What our participants say…
It was a great experience that left me feeling better equipped to do my job with more confidence. The educators were selfless with their time and patience. And the organisers were well organized, thoughtful and left us feeling looked after.
Thorough, engaging, excellent hands on experience with help and support readily available.
Very friendly informative educators. Surgical exposure and practical relevance was great. You could pretty much choose your depth of knowledge based on your own experience.
A fantastic practical and useful course. Directly useful and an excellent combination of theory and practical skills.
