Abstract
High tibial osteotomy (HTO) is an effective surgical technique that reduces pain and delays medial cartilage damage as a part of varus malalignment treatment for young, active patients. Lateral closed wedge HTO has been a popular choice, but with advances of surgical technique and fixation, medial open wedge HTO has become a popular choice of surgical treatment for most knee varus deformity. In the present review, we present the major issues to be considered during rehabilitation after medial open wedge HTO and propose a phased rehabilitation program.
