TPLO Surgery in Cleveland Heights, OH
Dogs have what is known as the anterior (or cranial) cruciate ligament (ACL or CCL). Unfortunately, this ligament can become damaged from chronic instability of the knee joint, or from sudden trauma. Rupture of the ACL can result in debilitating lameness if not corrected. We offer the TPLO surgery, short for Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy, for ACL injury.
The TPLO surgery provides:
- A more rapid recovery
- Better range of motion of the joint
- Development of less arthritis
- Return to athletic or working activity
To learn more about TPLO surgery or any other of our orthopedic surgeries, please contact us to make an appointment. Our veterinarians perform state of the art surgery while putting your pet’s safety and comfort at the forefront of everything we do.

We will also keep you informed while your pets are staying with us. We are only a phone call or text message away if you have any questions after you get your pets home.
