Objective: The aim of this study is to evaluate the results of using the TSF in treatment of complex lower limb deformities around the knee joint. Subjects and Methods: This study is prospective study was conducted involving 21patients who underwent correction of the mechanical axis using TSF and bone osteotomy in a complex knee deformity. Results: Using Schoenecker?s criteria there were 95.23% good result in term of good results in terms of pain and radiological criteria in our patients, 0 % fair results and there were 4.76% poor results. Conclusion: TSF is an excellent tool for the correction of multiple plane deformity around the knee joint in children and adolescents and significantly expands our ability to correct precisely the most difficult deformities.
