wHAT IS TPLO?
The TPLO procedure neutralizes the thrust of the knee by rotating the tibial plateau making it more level and thus the CrCl unnecessary. The TPLO and the TTA have been shown to minimize the progression of arthritis and are the best of the available treatments. The doctors will discuss each case with you and make a recommendation of which surgery is best for your dog and why.
