A six-part learning series with specialists Duncan Midgley and Kinley Smith.

CCWO has become a popular technique for the treatment of canine cranial cruciate ligament disease in dogs that have a steep tibial plateau or joint angle, such as West Highland Terriers. It can also be a preferred method of treatment in smaller dogs where techniques like TTA may be difficult.

This series covers the key objectives of this surgery, as well as bringing you footage of the practical demonstrations from the course.
