What is TPLO Surgery?
When dogs have a cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) injury, similar to a human having a torn ACL, surgical correction is the fastest way to get your dog back to running and playing!
When a CCL injury occurs, there are a few different surgical options to stabilize the knee, but nothing compares to the results of a TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy).
This procedure consists of cutting the top of the tibia, rotating it, and stabilizing it in a new position with a plate. The TPLO procedure has been proven to have consistent, positive outcomes–even in large, athletic dogs.
