Title: does HTO plate removal surgery have as many incisions as HTO?
Post by: jimmy987 on July 27, 2016, 09:59:00 PM
Just wondering.   For HTO there is this whole brace / scaffold thing that they attach to a person's leg, resulting in an incision above the knee, and one in the shin below.

For HTO plate removal, do they use this brace again?  Or do they just open up the one big incision above the plate?
