Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes during stifle surgery? This lecture pulls back the curtain, using captivating photos and videos to showcase key surgical techniques for approaching the stifle joint. Witness the placement of local nerve blocks, like femoral and sciatic blocks, for precise pain management.

Finally, Ryan will discuss his approach to the TPLO procedure and will bring it to life through engaging visuals
