TPLO Surgery

Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) Surgery


Offering the highest quality care for your pet, including:

TPLO corrects the effect of the torn CCL by re-orienting the tibial plateau (the top of the tibia) in a more level position. This eliminates the excessive fore and aft motion and force of the femur relative to the tibia (called cranial thrust). The simplest model that explains this well is the “Wagon on the Hill” example: Imagine a wagon (the femur) connected to a post on a hill (the tibial plateau) by a rope (the CCL).

Advanced pain management (intra and post-operative), including laser therapy

All inclusive pricing ($2,950), so no unexpected surprises at discharge

Free Orthopedic Exam for patients with current diagnosis and workup

Detailed discharge instructions, including at-home rehabilitation exercises

Post-operative recheck exam and x-rays included

AAHA Accredited hospital with Fear-Free Certified professional staff
