What are the advantages of this treatment for canine hip dysplasia?
“The short-term objective of the triple pelvic osteotomy (TPO) is to produce a stable, less-painful hip. The long-term, and perhaps more important, result of the surgery is to prevent the secondary arthritis seen in the mature dog. When performed in the right patient, the TPO can prevent the ravages of arthritis and restore pain-free hip function in the dog for the rest of its life.”
