Dr. Geoffrey Hutchinson was invited by KYON to be a course instructor for the Proximal Abducting Ulnar Osteotomy (PAUL) procedure in Boston, MA on August 8, 2015.
One of the most common causes of fore limb lameness in the dog is Elbow Dysplasia. Elbow Dysplasia is a generic term meaning arthritis in the elbow joint. As in people, arthritis in the dog is painful, resulting in intermittent and persistent lameness, especially following physical activity.
The PAUL is a palliative technique for the treatment of this lameness, showing particular benefit in younger patients, treated prior to the advanced stages of osteoarthritis.
The PAUL is a technically demanding surgical procedure that requires specific training to ensure the best possible outcome for dogs suffering from elbow dysplasia.
