Sumo was seen by a specialist on Monday and the vet confirmed that Sumo does have a full rupture of the CCL. Surgery is scheduled for Friday. However, during the consultation we were provided with two options: TPLO (tibial plateau leveling osteotomy) or TTA (tibial tuberosity advancement). We are a little unsure as to which procedure is better, long term , short term, risks, benefits. etc. From my last post, some members have experience with both procedures-just wondering if you can share why you chose one over the other. Also the pricing....most vets we contacted charge more for the TPLO than the TTA, but the vet who is completing the surgery is charging the same price for both the TTA and TPLO does this change your surgery preference?
