ORTHOPEDIC KNEE REPAIR

Tibial Tuberosity Advancement

is an advanced orthopedic surgery for treatment of cranial cruciate ligament rupture in the knee joint of dogs. 

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 less 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.
