Cruciate ligament injuries are a common problem in dogs and many require surgical intervention. Our surgeons are highly experienced in cruciate ligament surgery and regularly perform TPLO and TTA procedures- having performed in excess of 1500 cruciate procedures within the last decade. They will advise on the most appropriate management- usually surgical, after assessment of the pet’s condition and radiographs. For TPLO locking plate technology is used to provide greater mechnical stability thus reducing the risk of complications. A recent study at Cornell University confirms that TPLO returns dogs to better limb function than extra capsular stabilistation in the short and medium term.
