Osteotomy

Osteotomy

This post is part of a series of blog posts about the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeon’s Full Treatment Guideline for Knee Osteoarthritis.

Recommendation 21 – Realignment osteotomy is an option in active patients with unicompartmental OA of the knee with malalignment.

The research team found conclusive evidence that realignment osteotomies had benefits that lasted up to two years after surgery in patients that had knee OA and malalignment issues.
