Tibial Osteotomy for Genu Varum (bowleg) using Ilizarov Taylor Spatial Frame

Patient: Boyd

Boyd had an open tibia fracture that became infected and required a flap. This healed with a large deformity causing him difficulty walking and pain.

An percutaneous osteotomy was done and an Ilizarov/ Taylor Spatial frame was used for gradual correction of the deformity.

At 4 months, he is all healed and pain-free because his alignment is corrected.

At 6 mos, there is no pain
and progression of arthritis is slowed.
