Dr Udai Prakash is organising THE HYDERABAD OSTEOTOMY COURSE, on 2nd June at Taj Deccan to help knee surgeons share their wealth of experience in all aspects of knee osteotomy surgery, rehabilitation and dealing with complications.
Osteotomy means “cutting of bone in such a way so as to re-align it in its correct position”. There are many instances when a surgeon may offer an osteotomy as a course of treatment. For example:
- Bow legs or knock knees in children and young adults
- Straightening of man-united fractures
- Alleviate pain in arthritis of joint
- Correction of mal-tracking or recurrent dislocation of patella
- Correction of various congenital deformities etc
There has been a resurgence of interest in the use of osteotomy for alleviating pain in the knee due to arthritis. This procedure avoids or postpones knee replacement surgery or simply can be thought of as an alternative to knee replacement.
Many young adults also have deformities in their legs which could give them an awkward gait as well as prevent them from taking part in active sports. These deformities can also make them very socially conscious about the appearance of their legs. Many young girls with deformities are brought to us by parents anxious about their marriage.
The course has a mix of national, international and local faculty with a wealth of experience in this technique. There will be a live surgical demonstration and series of talks and discussions.
The course is targeted towards the young knee surgeon keen to develop an interest in this technique. Experienced surgeons will also gain from this course and will have a chance to network and learn the nuances of this surgery from experts.
