Knee Surgery

Knee Surgery

Deciding to have surgery is never easy.  You need to consult with your surgeon and discuss your medical history.

High tibial osteotomies are most successful in patients who understand exactly what they are getting into.  Patients should not be overweight, they should be active, and have a high tolerance for pain.  Also patients need to be able to take several weeks if not months off of work.

This surgery is not a treatment option for everyone who suffers from osteoarthritis of the knee.
