Triple Pelvic Osteotomy (TPO)

There are several surgical options for hip dysplasia, depending on the size and age of the dog. In young dogs, with hips still in the development stage, a triple pelvic osteotomy (TPO) may be the best approach. There are other surgeries done at this age, as well. The advantage of these surgeries done during development is that they can resolve the problem lifelong in many instances. They are technically complex surgeries and are usually done by specialists or at larger veterinary hospitals.
