Knowing how to perform life-saving surgery is a huge asset to every practitioner. Good pre-op preparation, optimal anaesthetic techniques, choice of sutures, wound care and effective post-operative care, all contribute to surgical success and good outcomes for the patient.
In the two day workshop, Dr Tom Edwards and Dr Jacque Parker, will teach you how to perform life-saving techniques such as gastropexy, splenectomy and diaphragmatic hernia repair, and also instruct you in pertinent topics that contribute to surgical success.

On the 25th and 26th of January, 22 Hong Kong veterinarians and 10 veterinarians from overseas gathered together at CityU to participate in an Emergency Surgery workshop. Dr Tom Edwards and Dr Jacque Parker, both from the US army veterinary corps, engaged in an interactive workshop, aimed at teaching the principles of emergency surgery. The lectures covered all topics involved in emergency surgery including the pre-op and post-op care of critical patients. A couple of guest lecturers provided valuable insight into the anaesthesia of a critical patient and the art of surgical biopsy taking.
The second day of the workshop, being the practical session, was a long and intensive day, where participants watched various techniques being demonstrated and then had the opportunity to practice these techniques themselves, with the tutors close at hand to offer their expert assistance.
SVM is proud to have hosted several overseas participants in the workshop (6 from Thailand, 1 from UK, 1 from China, 2 from Singapore). We thank the speakers for their time and assistance, and look forward to seeing all of you at the next CPE event.
