Dog question

Had it done on my bullmastiff. Worked well. She's gone a couple years now. She had it done at 2-1/2 years old. It lasted her whole life, she was 9 when she passed.

Do you know which procedure you had done?
There's 3 used procedures the TTA ,Tplo and the fabellar suture technique
I'm just hearing conficting stories on all 3
My surgeon wants to do the less invasive suture technique but I heard the other 2 might be better ?
It just gets so tough especially when you start googling stuff and you read these stories

I don't remember the name but I know they used heavy duty fishing line. If that makes any sense.

Okay if they used some type of line then it's the suture type technique what they want to do on my dog, the other 2 involve bone cutting

I'd say go for the suture, my dog had great success. Took like 3 months before she was almost normal again. No stairs for a while, I remember my wife sleeping downstairs with her for a while. Pretty sure it's cheaper too.
