Knee Osteotomy Treatment is a surgical procedure that is performed if arthritis damage is found in a section of the knee. The process is different from a complete knee replacement in many ways as only a minor portion of the knee is replaced. The method involves adding a wedge of bone or removing a wedge of bone either to the upper shin bone (tibia) or lower thighbone (femur) to help in adjusting the body weight in the damaged portion of the knee. Orthopedics performs this procedure on the younger generation, as there are more chances of full recovery. The treatment is recommended for people less than 50 years of age. It should be noted however that even after this treatment, a complete knee replacement is advised usually after a gap of 15 years. The high tibial osteotomy surgery places a wedge between the bones or takes out a piece of bone, thus helping them in alignment. The Knee Osteotomy Recovery process is delicate, and usually, crutches have to be used for a particular period for the bones to set in. Also, exercises have to be taken at regular intervals for the movements and the flexibility of the new joints. The Orthopedics will advise upon the generic medication to be taken. Full recovery is an easy possibility, but however since it is a temporary procedure, a total knee replacement might be suggested at a later point in time.
