What is Osteotomy?

Osteotomy surgery is a type of surgical procedure performed on the knee joint to realign the bones in order to relieve pain and improve joint function.

High tibial osteotomy (HTO) is a common type of osteotomy surgery that involves cutting and reshaping the upper part of the shin bone (tibia) to shift the weight-bearing load away from the damaged part of the knee joint.

DFO (Distal Femoral Osteotomy) is a complex surgical procedure used for early-stage knee osteoarthritis.

It involves reshaping the thigh bone to redistribute weight from the damaged area. Recovery can take months, and careful evaluation by a skilled orthopedic surgeon is required to determine if DFO is the best option for the patient.

Benefits

Osteotomy can ensure recovery for conditions such as:

Osteoarthritis

Osteotomy can be used to treat osteoarthritis of the knee by realigning the bones to reduce stress on the damaged joint surface.

Avascular necrosis

Osteotomy treats avascular necrosis by redistributing weight and reducing stress on the affected bone.

Hip dysplasia

Osteotomy can be used to treat hip dysplasia, a condition where the hip socket is too shallow and doesn’t properly cover the ball of the hip joint.

Malunited fractures

Osteotomy can be used to treat malunited fractures, where a broken bone heals in a deformed position, causing pain and limited mobility.

Leg-length discrepancy

Osteotomy can be used to treat leg-length discrepancy, where one leg is shorter than the other, causing problems with gait and balance.

Deformities

Osteotomy improves alignment and function for bone deformities like bow-leggedness or knock-knees by reshaping bones.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recovery time for Osteotomy Surgery?

The recovery time for osteotomy surgery can vary depending on the type of surgery and the individual patient. Generally, patients may need to use crutches or a walker for a period of time after the surgery, and physical therapy is usually recommended to help regain strength and mobility in the affected area. Full recovery may take several months or more.

Is Osteotomy a painful procedure?

Osteotomy is typically performed under general anesthesia, so patients do not experience any pain during the surgery. After the surgery, patients may experience some pain and discomfort, but this can be managed with pain medications prescribed by the surgeon.

Are there any risks associated with Osteotomy Surgery?

As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks associated with osteotomy surgery. These can include infection, bleeding, nerve damage, and complications related to anesthesia. However, the risks can be minimized by choosing a skilled and experienced orthopedic surgeon, carefully following pre- and post-operative instructions, and closely monitoring the healing process.
