Correction of unconventional knock knee deformity

  • Normallay, knock knee deformity is due to abnormal shape of the femur ( thigh bone), and we have huge experience of correcting these deformities by open and key-hole surgery way ( videos on Youtube ). This case was different as the sense that in this case the deformity occurred due to bad shape of the tibia (leg bone). The same was was corrected at the tibia using special fixation device called Tomofix. This case emphasizes the importance of finding where the deformity is, so that correction is made at appropriate place.
