What is cblo?
The CBLO, or CORA-Based TPLO procedure is a newer variation on the traditional TPLO which incorporates the benefits of the TPLO & TTA procedures and we are the only hospital in the area equipped and trained to perform this cutting edge technique.
A curved cut is employed in the upper part of the tibia and rotated to eliminate the forward thrust that occurs in dogs with a torn cruciate ligament. This procedure is also helpful in patients with specific anatomy that might not make them a candidate for the TPLO/TTA procedure.
Dr. Thompson will take measurements off of x-rays to determine what procedure is best for you and your pet.
