Course Overview

This unique Veterinary Surgical Training Academy’s course covers the theory and clinical use of energy devices in veterinary surgery. It is a practical hands-on one-day workshop covering three main areas of energy use in surgery; monopolar and bipolar electrosurgery, tissue-sealing advanced bipolar electrosurgery and ultrasonic (harmonic) technologies. During the workshop the techniques and technologies will be explained and demonstrated before each delegate is able to use each device in a safe and controlled environment. Emphasis will be placed on the safe and reliable use of each device.  

Topics Covered

  • Types and clinical use of energy in surgery
  • Electrosurgery – monopolar and bipolar technologies
  • Advanced bipolar – vessel sealing technologies
  • Ultrasonic technologies
