Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy
TPLO, or Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy, is a surgical procedure our veterinarians perform to treat cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) injuries in dogs. This type of injury is a common cause of hind limb lameness and can cause significant pain and decreased mobility. The TPLO procedure involves cutting and repositioning the tibial plateau, which changes the angle at which the bones in the knee joint move.
A splenectomy is a procedure done to remove a diseased or damaged spleen. The spleen plays a role in filtering blood, producing blood cells, and storing and releasing blood in response to injury or other stressors. In some cases, a dog's spleen may become enlarged, ruptured, or otherwise damaged, leading to the need for removal.
GDV, or Gastric Dilatation and Volvulus, commonly known as bloat, is a life-threatening emergency. We do GDV surgery to correct the twisting of the stomach, which can cause the blood supply to be cut off and lead to tissue death. The surgery involves untwisting the stomach and may also involve removing a portion or securing it to prevent future twists. With prompt and appropriate treatment, many dogs can recover fully from GDV surgery.
Fracture repair surgery treats broken bones. It involves realigning the broken bone and stabilizing it with pins, plates, screws, or other devices. Fracture repair surgery can be done under general or local anesthesia, depending on the location and severity. Proper postoperative care and rehabilitation are essential to ensure the best outcome and return to normal activity.
