Unlike the traditional method of subperiosteal stripping of tibial ligaments, this alternative does not damage ligaments. Between 1991 and 1996, the senior author performed medial epicondylar osteotomies in 80 patients (93 knees) with primary total knee arthroplasty; of these, 60 patients (70 knees) were available for 2- to 4-year followup.
