In early 2017 I underwent an Arthroscopy and debridement procedure on my right knee. Essentially they removed loose cartilage debris and to shave my knee bone where there were abnormalities. This was a symptom of the early onset of arthritis in the knee and a possible knee replacement in my later life.

Whilst i was undergoing physiotherapy, there was a noticeable remnant pain in my right inside leg. I was recommended later in the year to meet with a knee specialist. Physiotherapy outlined another issue with my knee. Loiza and the kids also noticed that after my leg surgery that my right leg was becoming more “bow” as well. I was unable to run, even on a treadmill and i added weight on.

Something had to be done. I met with the recommended Surgeon Mr Minhal Chatoo in Hitchin Hospital.

Mr Minhal Chatoo,  Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon 

I underwent a MRI scan as well as a full leg X-ray. All this happened in November/December 2017. On meeting with Mr Chatoo, he recommended a Tibial
Osteotomy (https://orthoinfo.aaos.org/en/treatment/osteotomy-of-the-knee/).

Prior to having the surgery i looked for blogs, use cases of people who had undertaken this type of surgery so that i can understand this type of surgery- its very thin.
