For a knee to be healthy the Femur and the Tibia of the knee should be in alignment so the compressive forces of the joint are transmitted evenly. If the knee falls out of alignment one side will take an excessive load and this will create premature wear and arthritis.

The operative solution to this condition is the High Tibial Osteotomy. During this procedure a wedge is opened in the tibia to correct the angulation in the joint and an anatomic plate and screws hold this securely.

Much of the development work for the High Tibial Ostotomy technique has been carried out in France and Joint Operations are proud to bring the gold standard plating system from France into the UK.

The video below from the Osteotomy Expert Group provides a good overview of the technique.
