Humeral Osteotomy: Typically a humeral osteotomy but why do you want it corrected? Is it painful? or does it cause ulnar nerve symptoms? If you have an indication (and even if you just don't like it cosmetically) you will need a full work up that will include advanced imaging and possibly nerve conduction/velocity studies. If it's the ulnar nerve causing symptoms, a simple ulnar nerve transposition can help. ...Read more

I have cubitus valgus in left hand as a result of old fracture , 
one month back  i treated with ulnar nerve transposition , 
can i treat my elbow angel?

Cubitus valgus elbow: Angulation can place "tension" on the ulnar nerve and result in what is at times referred to as a tardy ulnar nerve palsy. Transposition is recommended to relieve that tension on the nerve. If the fracture is very old it is usually not wise to treat the deformity now especially after or with nerve surgery but of course its never an absolute, speak to your surgeon about your concerns. ...Read more
