The cruciate ligament is one of the most important stabilizing structures of the knee joint. Rupture of this ligament results in rear limb dysfunction, pain and eventually arthritis.
Treatment is surgical. There is a variety of surgical treatments that we offer and they are based on patient's breed, size, age and family budget.
TTA (Tibial Tuberosity Advancement) is currently considered the best procedure for the treatment of cruciate ligament tears.
The objective of the TTA is to change the mechanics of the joint and therefore provide stability without compromising joint congruency.
