Orthopedic Surgeries Offered
TPLO: Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy
The TPLO is currently the commonly recommended technique to stabilize a canine stifle suffering from a torn Cranial Cruciate Ligament. In this novel procedure, the weight-bearing surface and geometry of the stifle are changed to reduce or eliminate the need for a Cranial Cruciate Ligament. Research has shown that this surgical technique can drastically slow or even halt the progression of arthritis in a CCL deficient stifle. The TPLO is one of the most common orthopedic procedures performed by Board Certified Veterinary Surgeons, and we are proud to be able to offer this service at our hospital.
