Cruciate Repair and TPLO Surgery
TPLO SURGERY is considered the gold standard in corrective surgery for cranial cruciate ligament tear.
Cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) tear is one of the most common injuries to the stifle (knee) of dogs. The injury is similar to the injury of the anterior cruciate ligament in people. The tear can be a complete rupture or a partial tear to the ligament.
There are many options for the repair of torn cruciate ligaments. At Kalamunda Veterinary Hospital we offer TPLO surgery using the radial cut method (Gold Standard) and a cheaper alternative for small dogs called the extra-capsular repair.
