Osteotomy

Osteotomy

An osteotomy is a surgical intervention that cuts and reshapes the bones and the procedure is usually performed to repair a damaged joint or to either shorten or lengthen a deformed bone that does not line up with a joint as it should.  It is also recommended in cases if someone has arthritis damage in just one area of the knee.

Osteotomy is also performed in combination with other types of knee surgery, such as cartilage surgery when the leg is bowed or knock-kneed. It is usually done under careful planning & observation during the recovery period and is done under general anesthesia.

What Makes You Eligible For An Osteotomy?

Osteotomy is usually done to correct the following conditions:

  • Excessive angulation, bowing or rotation of long bones.
  • Mal-alignment of a joint due to malunion or deformity like coxa vara, genu valgum, and genu varum, etc.
  • Elongation or shortening of a bone in cases of limb length discrepancy.
  • Relieving pain in arthritis, especially of the hip and knee.

 


 


More About Treatment

Types Of Osteotomy

Jaw Osteotomy: The operation is used to correct jaw problems and deformities like maxillary Prognathism, Mandibular Prognathism, Open bites, difficulty chewing, difficulty swallowing, Temporomandibular joint disorder pains, excessive wear of the teeth, and receding chins. It is in fact a preferred procedure for the correction of any dentofacial deformity due to its effectiveness.

Chin Osteotomy: Chin osteotomy is done to correct any chin deformity such as a vertical short chin or to shorten a chin. It usually refers to cutting the bone and moving it which is done through an incision within the mouth. It is technically more difficult than an implant and has more swelling resulting in temporary loss of feeling of the lip and chin and takes longer recovery than a simple chin implant that takes several weeks to months.

Elbow Osteotomy: In the case of elbow fractures most often deformities can cause changes in the angle of the elbow. The most common complication of a Supracondylar Fracture which is a fracture of the distal humerus just above the elbow joint is called a Cubitus Varus Deformity wherein the extended forearm has deviated towards the midline of the body. To correct this deformity, a supracondylar osteotomy or as commonly referred to as ‘French osteotomy’ is done.

Spinal Osteotomy: Spine osteotomy is usually performed depending upon both the location of the spinal deformity and the amount of correction that is required. Most often, a spinal fusion may also be performed along with spine osteotomy to stabilize the spine and prevent further curvature.

Knee Osteotomy: Knee osteotomy is performed to realign the knee structure in cases of arthritic damage on any one side of the knee. The goal is to shift the body weight from the damaged area to the other side of the knee, where the cartilage is still healthy. Often surgeons remove a wedge of the shinbone from underneath the healthy side of the knee, the shinbone and thighbone can bend away from the damaged cartilage.

Hip Osteotomy: A hip osteotomy is a procedure wherein the bones of the hip joint are cut, reoriented, and fixed in a completely new position. Healthy cartilage is placed in the weight-bearing area of the joint, followed by reconstruction of the joint in a more normal position. In this procedure, the surgeon makes an incision to expose the hip joint and then proceeds to cut away portions of damaged bone and tissue to change the way they fit together in the hip joint.

Patient Stories

  1. My day to day life started to hamper, due to unbearable back pain and painful limbs. I was scared of surgery as I have never been admitted in a hospital ever before in my life. I was confused with all the options popping in the internet. I came across the site of Medtravels and started exploring it. The reviews and testimonials gave me a confidence. I contacted them explained my condition and also how scared I am of the whole process. The team was so sensitive to my situation and always reassuring about the services and the whole treatment process. They provided me with multiple opinions with detailed profile of hospitals and doctors and I made my choice. Once am in the hospital, a minimally invasive surgery was performed and I was out of the hospital in just four days. The attention provided by all staff nurses and doctors are commendable, they were very kind and considerate. The team of Medtravels has always been a companion through my treatment journey. I am now back to a normal life and have regained my quality of life.

  2. A couple of year back, I was diagnosed with arthritis in right leg and the only cure was a hip joint replacement surgery. I heard of Medtravels from a friend who happens to have some past business experience with the company. So, he helped me reach out to the Associates in Medtravels, who then asked for all my past medical reports, I shared the reports and almost within 24 hours I was given an estimate that actually suited my expenses. However, I went online for more information about the company and their hospitals and was very impressed by the response and tie-ups they had. I was to travel alone, so I was a little uncomfortable travelling to a completely different country. However, immediately upon arrival there was an executive from Medtravels to pick me up. It seemed much more organized than I expected it to be. That alone was comforting. Once I arrived at the hospital, I felt very reassured about my surgery seeing the world class facilities available in the Hospital. I felt very assured that I was in good hands as there was truly open communication between doctors and myself. After my successful surgery, I left India but with memories to cherish and a friend like Team Medtravels herein.
