Do you suffer from knee pain in middle age? A high tibial osteotomy is a joint preservation procedure that will extend the use of your own knee by several years.

How do I do it?
I perform an opening wedge osteotomy. In this procedure, I perform an osteotomy( bone cut) on the inner side of the leg bone and fix it by a plate.
The patient is usually hospitalized for 2- 3 days. Weight bearing is possible soon after the procedure.
