Orthopedic Surgeries Offered At Animal Wellness Center

TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy):

TPLO is a cutting-edge surgical technique designed to stabilize the knee joint in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture. By altering the angle of the tibial plateau, TPLO reduces joint instability and restores normal limb function, allowing your pet to return to an active lifestyle with improved comfort and mobility.

TTA (Tibial Tuberosity Advancement):

TTA is another innovative procedure used to treat CCL rupture by altering the biomechanics of the knee joint. By advancing the tibial tuberosity forward and changing the patellar tendon angle, TTA minimizes stress on the injured ligament and promotes stability, facilitating a faster and more reliable recovery for your pet.

LFS (Lateral Fabellar Suture, Extracapsular Repair):

LFS is a traditional surgical technique used to stabilize the knee joint in dogs with CCL rupture. This procedure involves the placement of a suture outside the joint capsule to mimic the function of the damaged ligament, providing stability and support to the knee during healing.
