Tibial osteotomy, poor experience and cannot recommend

Dr. Goodfellow performed a valgus tibial osteotomy on my left knee in 1993. Other orthopedic surgeons have remarked on his over-correction of the knee alignment causing a valgus deformity. It has been the cause of years of great discomfort and has led to other issues including the ankle, hip, etc. Post surgery, additional complications were caused by a screw tip protruding from the tibia preventing rehabilitation until the buried metal was removed.
