A knee realignment procedure is joint preserving and highly successful in my patients. We follow up every single patient of ours who has had an osteotomy, monitoring pain and function. We have the largest research series in the world and our results are changing the direction of knee surgery on a global scale. Our results, show comparable results for osteotomy when we compare this to partial knee replacement in patients who are age matched and matched in terms of the amount of wear and tear.
Our unit like many other specialist osteotomy units in Europe have found osteotomy to be life changing for patients with both early wear and tear and bone on bone arthritis. With people living much longer and with a limited life expectancy of a joint replacement we believe everything should be done to preserve the knee and knee function for as long as possible.
