Tightrope patients show little or no arthritis at 4 years
For over 40 years, a big part of my practice focus has been on specific orthopedic issues, especially ACL/CCL injuries and repair. Through the years there have been many methods to resolve cruciate
instability. Five years ago a new technique entered the market....the Arthrex Tightrope System. Now
after delivering a few hundred Tightrope implant surgeries, I am convinced that in most cases, it is best procedure for the ACL/CCL deficient patient and the pet parent.
The Tightrope has been a wonderful addition to our lameness services. Many local and out of state
practices have been referring ACL/CCL cases and it is my hope we can expand this offering to more practices. Our relationship with the referring practice is simple. We strive for good communication with the referring doctor and the client, good value and return of satisfied client/patient back to your practice.
We hope you will give TightRope CCL your personal consideration. To make it easy to refer cases or to discuss the Tightrope details, we have establish a TightRope priority line 1-866-600-1269. Please
leave contact info and expect a prompt call-back.
Thank you for considering TightRope CCL,

Arthrex Information:   “TightRope CCL was developed five years ago to provide a minimally invasive and improved method for extra-capsular stabilization of the CCL. This technique does not require cutting of bone like the TPLO or TT procedures. Instead, it uses small drill holes in the femur and tibia to pass a synthetic ligament-like biomaterial through a small incision to provide bone-to-bone stabilization during healing. The bio-material used for the TightRope CCL is called FiberTape®. This is a Kevlar like material that is used extensively in human surgery for many orthopedic applications. This material has properties that make it stronger and less prone to failure than any other materials currently being used for CCL reconstructions.”                                                                 12_29_14
