The Making of a Robo-Dog

These x-rays are from Kaz's TPLO surgery.  You can see the stifle (knee) area where the femur and tibia meet.  For this surgery, they cut through the tibia bone and rotated it, then secured the break with a metal plate and screws.  If you look closely, you can actually see the line where they cut the top of the tibia off and you can see how it's positioned (with a little overhanging) over the straight part of the tibia.
