Cruciate Ligament Repair
We are happy to announce that we now provide OrthoZip surgeries! This is a fancy word to describe the surgical repair of a cruciate ligament rupture. This rupture is the complete or partial tear of the ligament (band of connective tissue that connects two bones at a joint) in the knee. The usual surgical fix was called a TPLO, and is still used amongst doctors. The OrthoZip is the newest widely accepted method of surgical repair for a cruciate ligament rupture. The many benefits of this procedure include reduced recovery time, reduced surgery time, high-strength, and is a less invasive surgery. Your pet will be up and moving quicker than if he had received a TPLO surgery!
