Corrective Osteotomy

 

When bones are misaligned, a corrective osteotomy surgery can be required. The high technical requirements (corrections of different angles in different planes), the complex bone geometry, the limited visibility and the restricted workspace can result in a difficult surgery.

A patient specific cutting guide is a custom-made instrument that helps the surgeon cut a bone. Coupled with a preoperative planning, the guide(s) will transfer this planning into the operating room, resulting in an accurate and time-efficient osteotomy correction. A fixator guide can be provided as well to guarantee the correct final position and alignment of the resected bones.

Both opening and closing wedge osteotomies are possible with this technique, as well as synostosis.

When bones are fused together, a corrective osteotomy can be performed, restoring the good function of the joint.

This synostosis surgery requires high precision in order to separate the bones to the appropriate depth on the one hand, and to maintain the healthy joint on the other hand.

A surgical guide helps the surgeon to resect coalescent bones. It controls the shape of the resection (depth, length and thickness) with a high precision and accuracy.
