In the west, total and hemi-arthroplasty for osteoarthrosis of the knee have become quite popular in the last decade, but in developing countries it will be a long time before the facilities for such operations will be generally available and the patients will be able to afford the high cost of prosthesis. However, until the long term results of arthroplasty are available, osteotomy will remain as one of the most reliable procedures for degenerative arthritis of the knee even in the west. Therefore in this study tibial osteotomy was done in patients with advanced osteoarthrosis who did not get relieved by the conservative line of treatment and had clinically obvious varus or valgus deformity.
