We describe a technique of femoral derotation osteotomy performed according to the Ilizarov principles of percutaneous corticotomy and fixation with a frame. We performed 24 femoral osteotomies in 16 patients, four with cerebral palsy and 12 with idiopathic femoral anteversion. All had rapid union and there were few complications. The advantages of the method include early ambulation, good control of rotation and axial alignment, and minimal scarring.
