An osteotomy is a procedure usually performed to correct damage caused by osteoarthritis or a deformity.
What happens during osteotomy?
Osteotomy is usually performed under general anaesthetic. During this procedure a bone is cut to shift the weight of an area away from where there is damaged cartilage to an area where the cartilage is healthy. In some cases bones are held into the correct position with rods or screws.
