Advanced Procedures For Cruciate ligament Surgery

TTA (tibial tuberosity advancement) is now being performed at Penrith Veterinary Hospital. Special implants are used in the bone below the knee to change the effective angle of the joint. Even though it is a much more complex procedure than ligament replacement, most dogs are walking well within 5-7 days of the procedure, so recovery is faster.
