The addition of TPLO surgery to the already comprehensive range of orthopaedic, soft tissue and advanced imaging services available at Roundhouse Referrals, backed by its Fixed Price Fix pledge, represents a step-change in improving accessibility to TPLO surgery for pets across Scotland.

Cranial cruciate ligament rupture is the most common cause of hindlimb lameness in dogs and consequently, TPLO surgery is a much-needed orthopaedic surgical procedure generally performed in specialist orthopaedic practices.

Lead Roundhouse Referrals’ surgeon, Ross Allan, an award-winning RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery said: “We know many practitioners and clients have been frustrated by the difficulties in availability of TPLO in Scotland and we wanted to change that!

“As with our other Roundhouse Referral offerings, we have done away with long waiting lists, unpredictable pricing, and challenges in clinical continuity. We know that in doing so we will revolutionise access to this service and the experience of its users.

“Our TPLO service offers excellent value and quality – we have invested heavily in the very best DePuy Synthes TPLO plates and implants and, together with our hospital status, standards and track record, we are offering a premier TPLO service in Scotland: a TPLO with a recovery that is as reliable and predictable as our Fixed Price!”

Roundhouse Referrals offers a comprehensive range of services, including advanced orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery and advanced outpatient diagnostic imaging. Amongst the innovative aspects of the service are a Fixed Price Fix, a guaranteed ‘same week solution’ and an interest free credit payment option.

Ross added: “Our innovative referrals service is now thoroughly tried and tested and we believe it is the very best available.”

Fixed Price Fix TPLO prices are: Dogs < 40kgs: £3000; Dogs >40kgs: £3100. The Fixed Price Fix price includes consultation, diagnostic X-rays/assessment, pre-surgical blood samples, hospitalisation, anaesthesia, surgery (including implants), follow up consultation and follow up X-rays.

“We don’t expect anything to go wrong, but should we need to revise our surgery we would do so at no additional cost to the client – that’s our Fixed-Price Fix!” said Ross.

Roundhouse Referrals promises to work in partnership with referring veterinary practices to provide an easier referral system that will always return satisfied clients to the referring practice.

Notes to Editors

• TPLO (tibial plateau levelling osteotomy) is a surgical procedure used to treat cranial (or anterior) cruciate ligament rupture in the knee joints of dogs. It involves changing the angle of the top of the shin bone (the tibial plateau) by cutting the bone, rotating it, and stabilising it in a new position with a plate and screws.
