Saving the Joint


The philosophy of “Saving the Joint” revolves around the idea of preserving the natural knee joint for as long as possible before resorting to joint replacement. This approach is particularly beneficial for younger, active patients who wish to maintain their knee function and avoid the limitations associated with artificial joints.

Osteotomies Around the Knee Joint

Early Intervention

Timely Treatment: Intervening early with procedures like HTO can correct alignment issues and prevent further joint damage.

Natural Joint Preservation

Functional Integrity: Preserving the natural joint maintains the knee’s functional integrity and biomechanics, providing a more natural movement compared to artificial joints.

Delaying Replacement

Extended Lifespan: By preserving the joint, patients can delay the need for knee replacement surgery, which may need to be repeated later in life due to the limited lifespan of prosthetic joints.

Patient-Centered Approach

Customized Care: The “Saving the Joint” approach focuses on individual patient needs, offering customized treatment plans that aim to preserve the knee joint and improve quality of life.
