Femoral osteotomy

An osteotomy of the thigh bone (femur) may be indicated in patients with excessive valgus (knocked knee) alignment of the knee and pain on the outside of the knee from overload.

The aim of the operation is to change the plumb line of the leg so that it does not put as much force and pressure on the painful part of the knee.
