We are delighted to inform our clients that this advanced orthopaedic procedure is performed at Coastline Vets.
One of the very common reasons of hind legs lameness in dogs is cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) disease. The CrCL is one of the several ligaments stabilising a stifle joint and damage of it can result with a knee instability. As a torn CrCL can’t heal, the condition is painful, and can lead to further damage to the joint.
To avoid further damage, the knee usually needs to be stabilised surgically. One of the newest and most advanced methods of dealing with this problem is procedure called Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA). TTA is performed by cutting the tibia and realigning it with the use of implants. The new joint confirmation is changing the stifle joint biomechanics and reducing instability within the knee. Most dogs following the procedure are able to go back to their usual levels of activity.
If you think your dog could benefit from TTA surgery, please book in for an appointment with one of our vets.
