New Surgical Technique available at Coastal Sunrise Animal Hospital for torn CCL in Canines

The MMP (Modified Maquet Procedure) TTA (Tibial Tuberosity Advancement) is an innovative surgery used for repairing cranial cruciate ligament ruptures in the knee joints of dogs. It is an alternative to a TPLO surgery that was introduced to the US 5 years ago. The MMP TTA procedure allows patients to return to function faster and has fewer long-term complications than other techniques. A titanium foam implant is used to advance the tibial crest, which pulls the head of the femur back into proper position. This implant is porous and encourages bone growth into the implant for added stability. The implant will fill with enough bone 4-6 weeks after surgery to stabilize the repair.

Dr. Gandy has completed training courses to perform this procedure. He is happy to accept referrals or new clients for orthopedic surgeries on dogs in Escambia County and Santa Rosa County areas. Contact us today and learn more about how the MMP TTA can help your four-legged friend.
