TPLO surgery prevents the cruciate ligament from forward and backward sliding of the femur on the tibia bone, also known as drawer motion. Rupture of this ligament leads to debilitating lameness.
The TPLO surgery also provides:
- A more rapid recovery
- Better range of motion of the joint
- Development of less arthritis
- Return to athletic or working activity
