The concept of tibio-fibular osteotomy is not new. In 1875 Volkmann reported on tibiofibular osteotomy for correction of deformities around the knee. Sir Robert Jones and Mr. Murray used tibio-fibular osteotomy in adults for correction of deformities of knee as a result of childhood disease notably ricke’s and also for those knees in which there was osteo-arthritis with deformities (Helal 1965). Interest appears to have been revived by the description in 1961 of II patients with osteo-arthritis of knees treated in this manner by Jackson and Waugh. Subsequently a number of reports of this operation in osteo-arthritis of the knee have been published.
