Wedge osteotomy of spine, a one stage operation, was first described by Smith-Petersen et al. (1945) for flexion deformity of spine in Marje-Strumpell’s arthritis. Goel (1968) used this procedure for correction of kyphosis in osteomalacia. Later on, vertebral osteotomy was reported in ochronotic spondylitis (Saxena and Sharma 1974), quiescent tuberculosis of lumbar spine (Saxena 1976,1978) and osteoporosis (Saxena 1976,1978). As the result of osteotomy of spine for correction of adolescent kyphosis till date have not been published in the available World literature, our experience with 2 such cases warrants report.
