Osteotomy is a surgical procedure in which a bone is cut and reshaped to correct a deformity or improve function. Osteotomies may be performed on any bone in the body, but are most commonly performed on bones in the leg, such as the tibia or femur. The procedure is typically used to correct deformities caused by conditions such as arthritis or developmental dysplasia of the hip or to realign bones after a fracture. Osteotomies may be performed using open surgery or minimally invasive techniques, such as arthroscopy. The procedure may be done in conjunction with other surgeries, such as joint replacements or ligament repairs.
