Re-operation afterOsteotomy for Arthritis
In many cases, physicians intentionally over-correct the legs to shift the patient's body weight away from the damaged area as much as possible, to the healthy side of the knee joint.
However, if the physician’s over correction is too much, it can lead to severe knock-knees and have a negative effect on joint health. Some patients visit our hospital with these complications. In these cases, we make the precise amount of leg alignment with re-operation.
The most important factor for arthritis treatment is accurate correction in osteotomy. The extent of cartilage damage or leg deformity depends on the stage of arthritis.
The target correction angle is different in each case. It is important to find the best angle and attain this accurately during surgery.
Discuss with Donghoon Advanced Limb Lengthening Reconstruction Institute the potential complications after osteotomy.
