MMP Surgery

The Modified Maquet Procedure(MMP) surgery that aims to bring the tibial plateau to sit at right angles to the straight patella ligament. Creating an incomplete tibial crest osteotomy for the placement of a MMP wedge creates sufficient post operative stability for rapid healing to occur.

The technique preserves soft tissue, requires a minimum of implants and saves time and morbidity. The Maquet technique is described in man as a technique to reduce patellofemoral pressure.
