Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO)
TPLO is a surgical procedure used to treat cranial (or anterior) cruciate ligament rupture in the knee joints (stifle) of dogs. The objective of TPLO is to redesign the stifle so the cranial cruciate is unnecessary for joint stability.
Total rehabilitation time is normally 14 weeks and includes physical therapy, which plays an important role in the postoperative care and success in patients.
We are proud to be the premier facility in the Southeast offering TPLO surgery and one of the only facilities in the region providing in-house physical therapy as an integral part of this treatment to help get pets back on their paws.
Interventional radiology (IR) is a form of advanced imaging that allows our doctors to perform minimally invasive procedures while viewing the moving parts in a pet’s body in real-time.
We respect the close bond between pets and their owners and treat each patient with dignity, compassion and kindness.
