TPLO

TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) surgery is a commonly performed orthopedic procedure for animals, especially dogs, with cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) injuries. The CCL is equivalent to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in humans and helps stabilize the knee joint. When the CCL is torn or damaged, TPLO surgery is often recommended to restore stability and function.

By changing the dynamics of the knee joint, TPLO surgery minimizes the need for a functioning CCL and allows for a more natural movement pattern. It also has a lower risk of implant failure and can lead to faster and more complete recovery compared to other procedures.

If your furry friend has a CCL injury, TPLO surgery may be recommended to restore their mobility and improve their overall quality of life.
