TTA (Tibial Tuberosity Advancement)
TTA is the newest, most advanced surgery for ACL tears (torn cranial cruciate ligament). Developed in Switzerland, this surgery is equally as effective as TPLO. Dr. Morshead has been performing this surgery since 2008.
- For complete, partial, or chronic ACL tears.
- Surgery is extremely effective on dogs of most sizes.
- Newest, state-of-the-art reconstructive surgery alters the biomechanics of the knee joint to counteract the force that caused the ligament to tear. Accomplishes this in a less-invasive way than TPLO.
- Uses new lightweight titanium implants (plate and screws).
We are pleased to be able to offer your pet this high-tech surgical procedure in our neighborhood veterinary practice.
