Tibial Osteotomy
« on: December 17, 2002, 01:00:43 AM »
My husband had his operation today and the surgeon did a Tibial Osteotomy (plate etc internal) and not a Femoral Osteotomy as originally planned.  The operation took 2 hours and he is in a DonJoy brace (not plaster). He had an epidural as well as a general, so pain control should hopefully be quite good over the next few days.  
He is having the same operation to the other knee next year.
We would be happy to hear from anyone who has had a similar operation please.
