Abstract

High Tibial Osteotomy is a valuable tool for young active patients with osteoarthritis that is isolated to a single compartment. Recently, more surgeons have migrated to the use of the medial opening wedge technique in the hope that some of the complications associated with the lateral closing wedge can be avoided. This article describes the preoperative evaluation, surgical procedure, postoperative rehabilitation, and its potential pitfalls. Our goal is to provide a concise easy-to-read manual for the procedure.
