Proximal Tibial Osteotomy
for correction of deformity

Doctor: S. Robert Rozbruch

Patient: Luis

Luis is 30 year old mailman who fractured his tibia in a baseball game 10 years back.

He developed arthritis in the knee, and also had a varus, flexion, and internal rotation deformity of his proximal tibia. He experienced pain.

We performed an osteotomy of his proximal tibia and applied a Ilizarov/Taylor Spatial frame to match his deformity.

Adjustments of the frame led to correction of his deformity and decreased pressure on the arthritic side of the joint.

He now has a straight leg with no pain.
