There are 3 different compartments of the knee joint-Medial, Lateral & Patellofemoral. Knee preservation procedure is performed by the osteotomy ( Cutting ) of the bone, transferring the heavyweight from the damaged part of the joint to the less damaged part thereby changing the limb alignment.
Knee preservation techniques are generally of two types:


Why is knee Osteotomy conducted?

There are few strategies for knee Osteotomy:

  1. It corrects the poor knee alignment.
 2. It transfers the weight from the damaged part of the knee joint to the healthier part.
3. It enhances the total lifespan of the knee.

Procedure for Tibial Osteotomy and Fibular Osteotomy

Tibial Osteotomy involves cutting off the tibia at the upper end which shifts the weight-bearing from the worn out tissue into the healthier tissue.

In Fibular Osteotomy, the thinner bone of the leg is operated. In this, a smaller piece of the bone from the outer side of the lower leg is removed so that weight can be shifted to the outer part of the knee.
 It is performed to treat osteoarthritis of the knee.  

What are the benefits you can get from knee preservation?

 1. Improves knee alignment and joint mobility.

3. This technique helps the knee to last for more than 10 years.
