Tibial Osteotomy: A proximal tibial osteotomy is the classic surgical way to straighten bowed legs in clinically indicated. Speak with your orthopaedic surgeon, we currently use a plastic (peek) implant that is flush with your bone (no prominent plate or screws) to secure the bony cut made to straighten the leg. You wear a brace for 6 weeks with crutches until minimal pain requiring no narcotics (ave day 10).
