First case of BC Fine Osteotomy™ in Canada

This lateral open wedge distal femoral osteotomy, which is an effective surgery for the treatment of a knee malalignment, was performed on August 21st. The surgery was a success and everything went according to plan. The scrub nurses were pleased with the layout of the toolbox and impressed with its simplicity and effectiveness. As for Dr. Forsythe, she said that the operation went smoothly and was delighted by the accuracy of the technique.

Our attending engineer was glad to hear her say ‘’you got it right” after she checked the scan to make sure everything was in place.

We are proud to have accomplished this milestone with Dr. Caroline Forsythe, who gladly accepted this commemorative plate we made for the occasion.
