Dr. Peterson has a special interest in orthopedic surgeries. He specializes in ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament or ACL, otherwise known as the Cranial Cruciate Ligament or CCL) reconstruction. ACL injuries are the most common rear leg injuries in dogs of all size and age. The most common cause of cruciate ligament rupture is excessive internal rotation of the tibia when the joint is partially flexed. This can be the result of trauma or running and planting the hind limbs while the momentum of the body continues to move forward. Early detection and treatment of a ruptured ACL or CCL will heal quicker and better with less chance of debilitating arthritis in the future or tearing of the adjacent ACL.
