Indications for proximal tibia osteotomies and distal femur osteotomies will be discussed. The advantages and disadvantages of closing-wedge and opening-wedge osteotomies, will be examined in a case-based discussion with special attention to the tibial slope. Surgical technique for osteotomies will be presented in a case-based format.
