Pain-free double-level osteotomy

Ricky has had a left closing wedge distal femoral osteotomy with a Tomofix plate, together with a medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy,with an allograft bone wedge and Active Motion One plate.

This is the long leg weight-bearing X-ray taken at two weeks after the double osteotomy. He had the odd twinge but no pain.

You can see how bent the other side is, which will be done a month after the first procedure.

Pain need not be a problem

If you listen to the video below you can hear Ricky confirm that pain really was not a problem after this pretty big operation, and he is willing to go ahead with the other leg in a relatively short timeframe.
