Optimize Your O.R.!
If you’re a veterinary professional who would like to get more comfortable and efficient in the operating room, optimize client advice surrounding surgery, or expand your surgical services, this 2-day vet conference is for you! In this immersive workshop, expert educators and surgeons, Dr’s Clara Goh and Howard Seim III will review practical advice for safer, more precise, and (in some cases) faster procedures.
Skilled soft tissue surgeon, Dr. Howard Seim, will share his favorite methods for abdominal exploratories, GI surgery, splenectomy, trauma management, and more. Video segments of clinical case material, carefully edited to form a real-life experience, will allow attendees to see cases actually operated on during each lecture.
In the second half of our course, accomplished orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Clara Goh, will share practical orthopedic surgical advice that can be applied in general practice. Through interactive discussion and viewing of recorded procedures, we’ll study orthopedic exams, radiography, and surgical methods for management of cranial cruciate ligament tears, fracture repair, and more.
In person seating is strictly limited! Register early to attend in person, or make plans to watch virtually through Zoom!

Register to See Why Our Attendees Love LSVA!
I learned SO much about myself and feel empowered to make real changes in my life.
I felt it was very well organized and I felt taken care of. Julie was an excellent speaker and I enjoyed the content very much.
I couldn’t imagine the program running any smoother.
More dates! More events! Love these and I will be back! THANK YOU!
Excellent conference!!! Much more intimate than the large conferences.
I love that we wrote and expressed rather than just taking in material. This was interactive for real.
It was such a well thought out conference. Well done.
