Zurich Cementless Total Hip Replacement

Before embarking on the canine THR journey, it is important that you consider seriously the financial, logistical, practical and technical requirements of offering this procedure in your clinic.

KYON THR Training is appropriate for veterinary surgeons with well-rounded orthopedic experience who are knowledgeable in fracture plating, corrective osteotomies and/or other Total Hip Replacement techniques. Not only must one be capable of executing the primary surgery, but also able to manage potential complications, both in the short and long term.

Your OR and hospital should be suitable for joint replacement surgery. Generally, canine THR is most successful when the surgeon/clinic assembles a THR team, makes a serious commitment to cadaver training, has a consistent case load (~10 per year minimum), and performs regular follow-up examinations.

Some surgeons/clinics will have more preparation to do than others. We are happy to discuss your specific circumstances and chart a path.

We offer three Zürich THR training events: the Basic Zürich Cementless Course, the Small Breed & Cupless Course, and the THR Master Class.

1. Introduction to Canine Total Hip Replacement

This 1 day program features an in-depth review of canine hip dysplasia, pathogenesis, early signs and screening, clinical and radiographic exams, requirements for canine THR (clinic, experience and equipment), clinical development and experience, basic surgical technique with bone model exercise, guidelines for the clinic and advisement on how to establish a successful canine THR business model in your practice.

2. Zürich Cementless THR Basic Training

The Basic course is offered in a 3 day format, mandatory for purchase of the Zürich Cementless THR system. Day 1 includes much of what is covered in the the introduces the implant and instrument systems, surgical technique, clinical development and experience with a THR bone model demo and lab. Day 2 concentrates on surgical technique, includes a cadaver demo, live surgery video with commentary and the first wet lab for attendees. Day 3 begins with a review of the cases performed on day 2 and is followed by a second cadaver lab and presentations on clinical experience, complications, aftercare and discussion. Following each lab, instructors and attendees will review and discuss the cases. The primary objectives of the Basic course are to communicate the core principles of successful THR surgery, practice in a wet lab setting, and review the cases as a group.

3. Small Breed THR & Cupless PHR Course

The Small Breed & Cupless course is a one day program intended for past attendees of the Basic course and current Zürich Cementless THR surgeons. The program includes lectures and discussion on case selection, surgical technique, complication and clinical outcomes as well as two wet labs where each attendee performs one small breed and one cupless hip.

4. Zürich THR Master Lab

The Master Class is intended for current Zürich Cementless THR surgeons. The program emphasizes complications, revisions, complex cases, strategies for improving and building up a successful THR practice and wet lab exercises. While we will review updates to the technique and system, the emphasis of the program is on wet lab exercise, each attendee will perform a minimum of 4 cases. The Master Lab typically includes both Small Breed and Cupless hip instruction.


5. Zürich THR Workshop

This program is limited to current Zürich Cementless THR users. The program emphasizes 6th Generation Zürich THR updates and wet lab training, each performing 2 complete THR cases and collaborating with their teammate to perform a mini THR and PHR. Lectures include updates on the 6th Gen system, review of standard technique, tips & tricks for planning and surgery, clinical experience and strategies for improving and building up a successful THR practice. Day 3 will include Zürich THR for Small Breeds and Cupless Partial Hip Replacement (PHR) instruction.
