Cranial Cruciate Ligament (CCL) rupture is the most common injury in the dogs knee. Most dogs require surgical repair of the torn ligament depending on the grade of tear. During the years many types of procedures have been developed to stabilize the knee. From simple and less invasive extra capsular imbricate suture to more invasive procedures such as the Tibial Plateau leveling Ostheotomy(TPLO) and the Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA).

We use Fiberwire and Tightrope technique for Cranial Cruciate stabilization surgery. View the video for surgery of Tightrope procedure for CCL We believe a less invasive procedure is better for you and your pet. The goal of the procedure is to have your pet back to normal activities without the discomfort of the unstable knee that causes pain every time your pet moves.
