Osteotomy

Summary

Osteotomy

Osteotomy (cutting of the bone) is a surgical procedure where the knee is cut and then reshaped to relieve pressure on the knee joint.

For most patients, osteotomy relieves pain and delays the progression of arthritis. Even though many patients will ultimately require a total knee replacement, an osteotomy can be an effective way to buy time until a replacement is required.
