TIBIAL TUBEROSITY ADVANCEMENT (TTA)
Tibial Tuberosity Advancement is the most advanced surgical procedure available for treatment of cranial cruciate ligament injury in dogs. Most dogs bear weight on the affected limb within 24 hours of surgery, and many dogs are fully weight-bearing by 2 weeks. The cut bone requires roughly 3 months to heal, during which time exercise and activity are restricted. Full and unrestricted use of the affected limb can be expected within 4 months of surgery.
