Webinar Series – In-Depth Update on Equine Tendon & Ligament Injuries – Module 3: Treatment Principles & Options (Recorded March 2021)


WEBINAR DESCRIPTION

Lecture 5 – Treatment Principles & Rehabilitation Strategies

There are common approaches for many overstrain injuries of tendons and ligaments. This webinar will review the phases of tendon healing to provide an overarching approach to the treatments most appropriate for each phase of healing. In addition, guidance on the most appropriate rehabilitation programmes will be presented

Lecture 6 – Treatment of Tendon Lacerations

Tendon lacerations present a significant proportion of distal limb traumatic injuries. A rational treatment approach to these injuries, injured surgical options and coaptation methods will be discussed.

    Roger Smith is Professor of Equine Orthopaedics at the Royal Veterinary College, London, UK. He qualified as a veterinary surgeon from Cambridge University (UK) in 1987, having obtained a First for his undergraduate degree and a Cambridge Blue at swimming. After 2 years in practice, he returned to academia to undertake further clinical training as a Resident in Equine Studies at the Royal Veterinary College. Following his residency, he undertook a 3 year research project culminating in the award of a PhD for his studies on the extracellular matrix of equine tendon.

    He remained at the Royal Veterinary College, first as a Lecturer in Equine Surgery, then as Senior Lecturer in Equine Surgery before his appointment as Professor in Equine Orthopaedics in December 2003.

    He divides his time between running a specialist orthopaedic referral service within the Royal Veterinary College, where he is involved in lameness diagnostics, imaging and orthopaedic surgery, and continuing to direct research into equine tendon disease. His principal research interests are understanding the pathogenesis of tendon disease, diagnostics for tendon and ligament disease, and stem cell therapy for tendons in both horses and humans.

    He is married to a medical doctor and has two sons.
