Cruciate Ligament Repair via CBLO

Signs my dog may have an injured cruciate ligament.

Rock Springs Wyoming CBLO Surgery For My Dog

  We have all heard of athletes “blowing out their knee” or tearing their ACL.
  Did you know that a similar injury can occur in dogs?
 Here are some things to look for:

  • The “Lazy Sit”-same hind leg stuck out to the side every time they sit.
  • Limping in the hind quarters.
  • Noticeable joint stiffness after physical activity.
  • Difficulty jumping or getting up.
  • Clicking sound in your dog’s stifle while walking.

How is the ACL injury diagnosed and treated?

1. Free Exam

Dr Rammell will provide a free examination of your dog, and if needed, take a radiograph of the affected knee. ($135 cost for x-rays)

2. CBLO Surgery

Dr. Rammell has a special interest in cruciate ligament repair in dogs utilizing the CBLO orthopedic surgery method. The all-in cost of this is $3,200.

3. Recovery

A major advantage of CBLO surgery is the rapid recovery period. Dogs often return to full function within 6 - 8 weeks of the surgery.

What is CORA Based Leveling Osteotomy (CBLO) surgery? ​

CBLO surgery is a procedure that combines the advantages of Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) and Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA).
It involves surgically re-aligning the axis’ of your dog’s tibia and femur so the joint can bear weight without slipping and causing your dog pain.
The repaired bone is stabilized with a bone plate, and recovery is much more rapid than other techniques used in the past.
