Why choose Fitzpatrick Referrals for a TPLO?
Your patients are in excellent hands at Fitzpatrick Referrals, whether for routine or advanced specialist procedures.
Cranial cruciate ligament disease is a common condition we treat using our preferred technique, TPLO.
The Fitzpatrick Referral team have experience of performing over 6500 TPLO surgeries.
This level of experience means that we have very low complication rates. Our surgeons can adapt their surgical techniques to all different patient anatomy types using each other’s experience to work as a team.
All patients receive a comprehensive preoperative assessment which is included in our fixed-price package.
We fully appreciate that all patients are unique, and an individualised patient care plan is essential for their whole journey through our practice.
The perfect plate for all patients
We stock a large range of high-quality implants, meaning that we can find the perfect plate for all our patients. We are also able to custom-make plates where required for unusual cases.
We routinely perform surgery the day after or the same day as the initial consultation to minimise the inconvenience for your client (both nights pre/post hospitalisation included in the fixed price cost).
We have a fast response time; we appreciate that for your client their family member being lame is often very distressing and we want to help your patients get back to fitness as soon as possible. Most cases can be seen within a week from your initial referral.
