Pet TPLO Surgery in Corbin, KY

A tear in the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) is a frequent knee injury observed in dogs, akin to the ACL in humans. When a dog experiences a CCL tear, it leads to pain, impeding normal walking. If left unaddressed, the consequences include heightened joint damage, persistent pain, and the onset of osteoarthritis.

The most significant progress in treating CCL tears has been the Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy surgery, commonly known as TPLO. TPLO has demonstrated superiority over other surgical repair methods for CCL injuries, particularly in larger or highly active dogs. For the majority of canine CCL injuries, TPLO stands out as the optimal treatment, boasting minimal complications and a relatively swift return to comfortable, full activity. Almost all dogs undergoing TPLO can safely and comfortably return home on the day of or the day after surgery, resuming walking within that time frame.
