About the course

Do you want to offer the gold standard treatment for cruciate disease? Are you afraid that TPLO is complex and has a big learning curve? Traditional TPLO is complex and we know that you want to get it right. OssAbility Guided TPLO uses a surgical guide to control the osteotomy and rotational correction. Our experts also offer case-by-case surgical planning and support. This allows you to offer this treatment with safety and confidence.

Learning outcomes

  • Understand the principles of TPLO
  • Perform epidural analgesia
  • Practice OssAbility TPLO procedure on plastic bones and cadavers
  • Access the case-by-Case support service for expert planning and ongoing support


TPLO offers the best long-term outcome of all cruciate disease treatments. However, traditional TPLO is out of reach for many veterinarians because it is complex. We have simplified the procedure and are experts in helping you perform safe surgery. Offer TPLO to owners that want a premium treatment that gives the best long-term outcome. It is a great option to treat all sized dogs especially when other treatments are not suitable. Sign up for a workshop. Learn how to perform the OssAbility Guided TPLO. Practice on bone models and cadavers. Get case-by-case support and treat patients in your clinic.
