Patient Case History: Yesinia

Correction of Large Genu Valgum (knock-knee deformity)


Patient Surgeon: S. Robert Rozbruch
This young woman with genu valgum was having lateral knee pain, progressive arthritis, and difficulty walking.


Staged bilateral tibia and fibula osteotomies were performed followed by gradual correction using the Taylor Spatial Frame.


She has complete correction of her alignment and no knee pain. This will help prevent what would have otherwise been rapid progression of arthritis.
