Perineal & Urogenital Surgery Workshop
Perineal and urogenital surgeries require time, skill, and patience. There are plenty of delicate structures to negotiate, and the potential for complications is sobering. We bring together specialist educators along with our first-class workshop facilitation team to deliver an outstanding clinical education experience. We’ll look after you, so you can apply your time and attention to your own surgical practice in this fully-supported weekend workshop.
Perineal & urogenital surgery in clinical practice
There are bold surgeons, there are old surgeons, but there are few old-bold surgeons – Mark M. Ravitch, 1910-1989.
We see this workshop as a great opportunity to become an informed surgeon. Perineal and urogenital surgeries in general veterinary practice include anal sacculectomy, urethrostomy, hernia repair, cystotomy, nephrotomy and renal biopsy. Participants will receive detailed instruction on these procedures and have the opportunity to perform each of them in the practical sessions. As a bonus, this workshop also features surgical oncological approaches to the inguinal region. Participants will complete inguinal lymph node excision and two separate flap repair techniques.
Advance your surgical skills
A VetPrac workshop is designed to acknowledge your existing skills and provide you with the right opportunity for advancement. At this workshop, you’ll enjoy 8 hours of hands-on surgical practice with personalised tuition and feedback on your technique. Now it’s your turn to surround yourself with veterinary specialist surgeons and discover the nuances that can revolutionise your surgical practice.

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.
