Read an article about this case published
in the medical journal Techniques of Foot and Ankle Surgery.

Claudia had ankle trauma that resulted in post-traumatic arthritis and varus deformity. She experienced pain and stiffness.

We performed a distal tibia and fibula osteotomy to correct the varus deformity ...

... and a simultaneous ankle distraction for the arthritis.

Two years later, she has minimal pain, good mobility ...

... and a much wider joint space on x-ray..
