Orthopedics -- TTA / TPLO

TPLO / TTA is the recommended surgery to repair ACL tears for all dogs over 90 pounds, 60-90 lb. dogs that are very active, or have performance careers, pre-existinarthritis or other orthopedic problems.   We have done many TTA's over the last year and have had equal results as with the TPLO.  Knee surgeries typically cost $3000-3500.  At the consult, choices and options for your dog will be presented.

For puppies less than 5-8 months old with an ACL tear, we are offering a TPLP which places a screw in the tibia to close a growth plate.  They do quite well without the need for TTA or TPLO later.
