High Tibial Osteotomy

An osteotomy is Surgery that involves shaping and realigning of bones at a joint. It is usually used to treat arthritis in young patients, and is particularly recommended for those with very shallow joint sockets.

In High Tibial Osteotomy the upper part of the tibia - one of the limbs forming the lower leg - is resurrected, mostly by removing a small part of bone in the area.
