In Valgus knee arthritis, the knee angles to the outside – wearing out the lateral side of the knee. It is also called a knock -knee deformity. It is more difficult to reconstruct with a Total Knee because the lateral ligaments are so chronically contracted ( we have to surgically lenghten the lateral ligaments to balance the knee).
