with Matt Dawson & Mike Risebury

“Osteotomy Question Time”
with Matt Dawson & Mike Risebury

Date: Monday 2nd November 2020
Time: 18:00 BST
Duration: 60 Minutes
CPD Points: 1

During this webinar Mr Matt Dawson and Mr Mike Risebury will discuss various aspects of knee osteotomy, including common mistakes and complications highlighting need for high quality imaging, accurate planning and accurate delivery of the surgical plan. They will include discussion on hinge position, the effects of tibial slope modifications as well as double osteotomy. They will also present an overview of the BC Fine Osteotomy™ solution.

Topics covered include:

Fundamentals of Knee Osteotomy

Cutting Edge Osteotomy planning in 2D & 3D
Patient Specific Instrumentation (PSI)
Patient Specific Plates – How are they used for complex osteotomy cases

Event details

Topics covered include:

Introduction – The Fundamentals of Knee Osteotomy (Mr Matt Dawson)
An overview of the basics, common errors and complications, 3D not 2D procedure. Use hinge position to highlight benefits of 3D planning

Controlling Tibial Slope (Mr Mike Risebury)
To include the effects of slope change, effects of hinge angle and position on slope change, HTO + ACL, and custom plates. Focus Surgeon errors from tertiary referral case studies.

Double Osteotomy (Mr Matt Dawson)
Why more are being done, complexities of double osteotomy, benefits of 3D planning. Use 3D planning to explain these complexities.

Fine Osteotomy (Mr Mike Risebury)
An overview of the complete FO system 

Learning Objectives

Participants will learn:
To evaluate a new solution that allows for pre-planning of high tibial osteotomy.
A system called BC Fine Osteotomy™ allows visual planning of these crucial parameters of HTO in a 3D environment and facilitates fabrication of a patient-specific guide and plate to replicate the 3D surgical.


Mr Matt Dawson

Matt Dawson is a Knee Surgeon who specialises in sports injuries and degenerative conditions affecting the knee. He is a leading authority on osteotomy and Joint Preservation surgery in the UK and Europe.
Mr Dawson performs a wide range of knee procedures including arthroscopy, femoral and tibial osteotomy, total and partial knee replacement, articular cartilage surgery, single and multiple ligament reconstruction, patella realignment and stabilisation and a range of combined complex procedures for deformity and instability. Mr Dawson has developed one of the largest UK practices in osteotomy.
Mr Dawson believes in the principle of joint preservation in order to prolong knee activity and knee function to the highest level. His philosophy is to individually assess patients with the appreciation that alignment and stability of the knee are the bedrock to successful knee function and successful surgery.
Mr Dawson is committed to the education of healthcare professionals. He hosts a successful fellowship in Osteotomy and Knee surgery at North Cumbria University Hospital and lectures locally, nationally, and internationally. He has published in peer-reviewed journals on the subject of osteotomy. He is one of two UK members on the ESSKA osteotomy committee.
In June 2015 Mr Dawson launched the annual Northern Osteotomy Masterclass. This acclaimed course attracts experts from around the globe and provides high-quality training for consultants and the surgeons of tomorrow. He is a co-convenor of the Basingstoke Osteotomy Masterclass and founder member and committee member of UKKOR, the world’s first national osteotomy registry.
Mr Dawson is working at the leading edge of knee osteotomy surgery with device technologies, surgical applications, and teaching techniques. He is a driver in several research projects in the field. Currently Mr Dawson is collaborating with a leading American company and European colleagues with a groundbreaking technology aimed at increasing accuracy of osteotomy surgery. This innovative technology permits correction of alignment to occur under precise post-operative control using a magnetic remote control device. Mr Dawson is the first UK surgeon to perform this surgery.

Mr Mike Risebury

Mike Risebury trained in Cambridge, London and Wessex before an Australian fellowship. He was appointed at Basingstoke and North Hampshire NHS Foundation Trust from November 2010. Since then his private practice has developed at The Hampshire Clinic. His practice includes all aspects of Knee Surgery. Special interests are sports injuries, arthroscopic surgery, ligament reconstruction, meniscal preservation (repair), cartilage surgery, osteotomy (re-alignment), as well as total and partial knee replacement (including complex and revision surgery). He also performs hip replacement surgery.
Mr Risebury is actively involved in teaching programmes for other medical professionals, regularly lecturing nationally and internationally. He has been a faculty member on several courses teaching surgical technique in areas such as ACL reconstruction, meniscal repair and osteotomy. Research is an important part of his ongoing professional development, and he has presented and published scientific papers on various aspects of orthopaedics and particularly knee surgery.
