The TTA technique to repair those tricky knees and ligaments

Published: 18 Aug 2019

Dogs can rupture their cranial cruciate ligaments - in fact, they do this fairly often... and they don't even play football or rugby! There are a number of different techniques to repair this problem and one of them is the "TTA", which stands for "Tibial Tuberosity Advance". Take a look at these pre- and post-operative x-rays and have a listen to commentary by our orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Juan, as to why and when this technique is used. (Oh, and forgive Juan his heavy accent and his shyness! He's never done one of these videos for us before! )
