Project Description

This surgical illustration depicts a Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy surgery, otherwise known as a TPLO surgery. The procedure of sawing the bone and inserting the plate is shown. These steps are critical to ensuring proper angle alignment of the new bone position. Additionally, inserting the screws in proper sequence is important to securing the plate in the bone, flush to the surface.
