Osteotomy

If you suffer from early osteoarthritis that has damaged one side of your knee joint, you may be a candidate for an osteotomy realignment procedure at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. You can trust that our team of top-ranked physicians delivers the highest standard of care when it comes to knee injuries. Our staff includes dual board certified sports medicine specialists who carry extensive training in the latest orthopedic techniques. Whether you are an elite athlete or weekend warrior, we can restore your knee joint to optimal health and comfortable function once again.

In patients who have improper alignment in their knee, there can be added stress and pressure to either the outer (lateral) side or the inner (medial) side of the knee. This often leads to osteoarthritis or cartilage damage. Our surgical team is well equipped to perform specialized surgical techniques to correct this misalignment and prevent more extensive knee problems in the future.

Distal Femur, Tibial and Extensor Mechanism Realignment

Osteotomy literally means “cutting of the bone.” During a knee osteotomy, either the tibia or femur is cut and reshaped to relieve pressure on the knee joint. This procedure can be referred to as a realignment of the distal femur, tibial and extensor mechanism, which can be highly effective for prolonging the lifespan of the knee joint and helping patients avoid the immediate need for a total knee replacement. By transferring weight from the arthritic part of the knee to a healthier area and/or correcting poor knee alignment, an osteotomy can also delay the progression of arthritis in the knee. Many young patients choose this type of procedure so they can lead a more active lifestyle in the years to come.

If knee pain or stiffness is keeping you from excelling in sports or exercising at a young age, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. We understand the unique concerns that young athletes face and can recommend effective treatment options to bring you out of pain and help you avoid joint replacement.

At our state-of-the-art facility in Atlanta, we offer a full menu of knee injury treatments, including innovative solutions for cartilage damage and associated knee problems. Contact us today to schedule a consultation regarding Osteotomy from one of Atlanta’s premier orthopedic surgeons.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
