Arthritic knee solutions
Medial compartment arthritis of the knee causes pain and interferes with the activities of many physiologically young and active patients.
Treatment options for these patients are limited if they wish to stay physically active. Total knee replacement (TKR) is reliable at providing pain relief for these patients but it restricts their work and sporting capabilities considerably.
The main goal of a high tibial osteotomy (HTO) is to realign the leg to decrease the pain associated with arthritis.
