Statement of the Problem: Medial compartment arthritis is very common in Asian population, because of a preponderance of varus knees. The choice in such early OA varus knees has been between two radical surgeries, total knee replacements, and high tibial osteotomies. The Prakash Fibular Osteotomy (PFO) is a much simpler, minimally invasive, day care procedure that realigns the knee joint, and delays knee replacements by a decade or longer. Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: Based on observations in a prison, and making a correlation between upper fibular fractures and dramatic relief in medial compartment OA, a study of 14000 knees was made, to evaluate the varus scenarios in Indian knee joints. Based on this, the surgery was developed. Findings: 100 knees operated between 2006 and 2015, showed consistent pain relief lasting five years or longer. Conclusion & Significance: PFO is a significant development in treating OA knees with varus and primary unicompartmental arthritis, and a better alternative to knee replacements and high tibial osteotomy.
