Study Summary

An osteotomy is a standard surgical operation in which one or more bones are cut or lengthened or re-shaped. While planning for osteotomy, the surgeon sometimes uses a custom-manufactured cutting guide. The investigators are testing a relatively new approach called mixed reality navigation in planning this surgery in this study. For the purpose of this study, the investigators will compare the accuracy of performing osteotomies with the aid of mixed reality navigation as compared to osteotomies that were performed using prefabricated cutting guides for patients in the past few years.
