Tibial Tuberosity Advancement - TTA Rapid

Cara Veterinary Group are delighted to announce the launch of the TTA Rapid (Tibial Tuberosity Advancement) surgical procedure, which can be performed at our state-of-the-art facility at Cara Veterinary Hospital.

After extensive training, Sydney Nagle is now able to offer this cutting edge orthopaedic operation for the repair of ruptured cruciate ligaments in suitable patients.

This state-of-the-art technique uses titanium implants and specialised equipment, to enable these dogs to benefit from superior healing.  The TTA increases post-operative comfort levels and enables a rapid return to use for the affected limb.

Our experience Principal Vet, Sydney Nagle will see clients on a first opinion or a referral basis.

TTA Rapid

Compared to alternative TTA and TPLO methods the TTA RAPID method is kept quite simple: TTA RAPID is just one implant with 4/6 screws. The TTA RAPID reduces surgical time compared to other techniques. This results in a safer procedure with less anaesthetic complications. TTA RAPID implants are made of Titanium (Grade 1), which minimizes the risk of infection. In addition the implant is designed with a open sponge construction which allows the bone to grow completely through the implant.
