Cranial Cruciate Ligament Repair

A common knee injury for dogs is the rupturing of the CCL. If your pet suffers from this injury, Dr. Zach Talbert offers Tightrope procedures to help treat your pet. The tightrope procedure is a minimally invasive method that places a stabilization device in your pet's knee through bone tunnels drilled using smaller incisions.

Not only is this treatment more cost-effective than TPLO surgery, another treatment option for this condition, but it is also proven to have fewer and less severe complications.

If your pet's CCL has ruptured, please call us to discuss if they would be a good candidate for the tightrope procedure. It is important that you can limit your pet's activity for a period post-operation. We're happy to discuss your pet's situation and help you determine if this is the right option.
