More About Surgery for Knee Injuries in Pets

Both dogs and cats can suffer from knee injuries, but they are more commonly seen in dogs and usually involve the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) and the kneecap. At BluePearl Pet Hospital in New Braunfels, our surgeons are ready to help get your pet back on his feet. 

TPLO Surgery for CCL Tears

A torn CCL (known as the ACL in humans) is the most common orthopedic injury in dogs and can cause a great deal of pain and difficulty walking. At BluePearl in New Braunfels, our surgeons use different techniques to treat torn ligaments in the knee, including TPLO surgery. Learn more in this BluePearl article.

MPL Surgery for Dislocated Kneecap

Another common knee injury that requires surgical treatment involves the kneecap and is known as medial patellar luxation (MPL). This condition occurs when the kneecap slides out of its normal position in what’s called the patellar groove, and may be caused by a physical defect present at birth or trauma to the knee. During MPL surgery, our veterinary surgeons may perform several different small procedures to reposition the kneecap.

These techniques may include:

  • Deepening the patellar groove
  • Releasing any muscles placing excessive strain on the kneecap
  • Tightening ligaments and other soft tissue to hold the kneecap in place
  • Adjusting the attachment of the tendon that extends from the thigh muscle to the kneecap
