Every dog is different, and recovery depends upon many factors, but TTA surgery has very good results.
Check out the video of “Rudder” who had bilateral, simultaneous (both knees at the same time) tibial tuberosity advancement surgery by Dr. Leahy. Rudder was walking fine in two days!
Here’s a photo of “Breezy”, who had TTA performed by Dr. Leahy on both knees. Believe it or not, this is an “after” photo. Breezy’s knees recovered so well that her stance and movement was good enough to help her win this “Best of Winners” award at the Northern Connecticut Kennel Club dog show.
Of course, results vary, but it is not unreasonable to expect your dog to enjoy a healthy recovery.
Some Testimonials for Canine Knee Surgery
10/26/2010 – Freddy’s back leg, was very bad. He couldnt walk on it for quite some time. I took him to see Dr. Leahy he did a TTA on Freddy’s knee. He went through a long period of TLC and we thought he was going to need surgery on the other knee, but its been almost two years and he’s doing great. We have chickens and he runs after them at high speed, jumps off the deck instead of using the steps. Thank you very much to Dr. Leahy, and the staff of CVC.
10/26/2010 – I was thrilled with my 8 yr old Bernese Mtn Dog’s TTA surgery and recovery. Cassie lived another 2.5 yrs (very good for a Berner, for those who don’t know of their longevity issues) and had very minimal mobility problems until her final illness. Whenever someone mentions needing cruciate surgery and know only of TPLO I try to enlighten them to TTA, in general, and Dave Leahy, specifically. You guys are always there when we need you. Thx!!
10/04/2011 – Lady is a 9 year old (we think – she is a rescue) mixed breed who needed a TTA several years ago. Leia was the vet tech who took special care of Lady, and Leia always remembers Lady when we come in to the office. It makes us feel very special! Leia is the only person at CVC Vet that Lady feels comfortable with and, well, just loves Leia! Dr Leahy was great too and Lady recovered wonderfully! Dr Leahy explains everything and is meticulous and thorough. Thank you Leia and Dr. Leahy!
