Methods: Sixteen patients of fracture neck femur were treated with repositioning osteotomy and osteosynthesis with a 120 o double angle blade plate. Ten patients had Pauwel's type II and 6 had type III fracture. Results : The average period for fracture healing was 14.87 weeks. No patient developed avascular necrosis. The average duration of follow up was 25 months. A new scoring system has been described. The results were excellent in four; good in nine; satisfactory in two and poor in one case. Conclusion : Reposition osteotomy provides stability and union in femoral neck fractures.
