TPLO on both backlegs

This is a recent radiograph we were sent of one of our patients from 2010, who had ruptured a cruciate ligament and had a rotational (slocum) TPLO.

Minnie is very comfortable on the leg, and the xray shows bone healing and remodelling, minimal effusion and minimal development or arthritis-related bone spurs (osteophytes).

Cranial Cruciate Ligament degeneration is the most common orthopaedic condition we see in dogs, and the TPLO, either by rotational cut in medium to giant breeds, or by wedge removal from the tibia (shinbone) in smaller, terrier type breeds, is the most effective treatment to re-stabilise the knee for long-term comfort.

Our surgeon Colin Whiting has performed over a thousand of these procedures, and there are dogs trotting round pretty much all towns and areas of Cornwall (and some further afield too) on knees rebuilt by Colin and our orthopaedic nurse team!
