TPLO (TIBIAL PLATEAU LEVELING OSTEOTOMY)
We offer TPLO surgery at Avon Animal Hospital. The TPLO procedure is a method to repair a cruciate ligament rupture. TPLO surgery helps to stabilize the stifle and reduce the likelihood of further osteoarthritis progression. The TPLO is the most common procedure for dogs with a cruciate tear. The philosophy behind the TPLO surgery is to completely change the dynamics of the dog’s knee so that the torn ligament becomes irrelevant to the stability of the knee itself.
The three of the most common alternatives to ACL surgery are:
- Traditional Extracapsular Lateral Suture Technique
- Tightrope Technique
- Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA Surgery)
