Coronavirus Information

In response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak and in line with national guidance, we have suspended our private elective admissions as we support our colleagues in the NHS. 

We are continuing to provide outstanding care for private patients within the Trust’s urgent care pathways and we are also offering selected outpatient consultations via video conference or telephone.

If you are an existing patient and have any questions about your treatment, please contact your consultant or their secretary directly.

For new patients that require urgent treatment or would like to be kept informed of when we can begin to accept elective admissions, please call our enquiry team on 0208 909 5114 or complete the contact form.

We want to thank you for your understanding at this time.

High tibial osteotomy is a surgical procedure to realign the leg and reduce the pain you have from your knee by transferring the body weight to the preserved normal outer side of the knee.

More Information

The surgical technique involves making an incision over the tibia, approximately 1 cm distal to the joint line. A wedge of bone is removed, based on the surgeon’s calculations, to allow the angle of the knee to be adjusted.

The space created in the tibia is filled with a bone graft and a metal plate and screws are used to hold the tibia in position while it heals and in a realigned mechanical axis so that there is less pressure/body weight going through the worn area of the knee.
