At SportsVet Animal Medical Center, our primary goal is to provide high-quality veterinary care that keeps your pets healthy and active.
We offer comprehensive veterinary orthopedic services that are specifically designed to diagnose and treat conditions affecting your pet's bones, joints, and muscles, with the aim of restoring mobility and ensuring their overall comfort.
One of the most frequently performed orthopedic procedures at our center is TPLO surgery, which stands for Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy. This surgical intervention is primarily used to treat dogs with a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in their knee joint. An ACL tear is a common injury that can cause pain, lameness, and joint instability in dogs.
During TPLO surgery, our highly skilled veterinary surgeon will make an incision in your pet's knee and carefully cut the tibia bone. The bone is then repositioned and stabilized using a metal plate and screws, creating a new angle that effectively reduces joint instability and eliminates the necessity for the damaged ligament. The entire procedure typically takes approximately 2 hours to complete, and strict rest and rehabilitation protocols are essential for your pet's successful recovery afterward.
At SportsVet Animal Medical Center, we pride ourselves on having state-of-the-art equipment and a team of experienced professionals who specialize in performing TPLO surgery and other orthopedic procedures with precision and utmost care. Additionally, we offer comprehensive preoperative consultations and diligent postoperative follow-up care to ensure that your pet receives the best possible treatment and support throughout their recovery process.
If you notice any signs of joint pain, limping, or difficulty walking in your pet, we strongly encourage you to schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible. Our dedicated veterinary team will conduct a thorough examination, accurately diagnose the underlying issue, and provide a customized treatment plan tailored to meet your pet's specific needs. With our expertise in veterinary orthopedics, we are committed to helping your beloved companion live an active, healthy, and pain-free life.
