Amy-

A TTT is a Tibial Tuberosity Transfer.  It is when the tibial tuberosity (where the patellar tendon meets the tibia) is transferred to a different position.  It is usually done to correct maltracking problems.  It is also sometimes called a TTO (tibial tuberosity osteotomy) or patellar translocation.
