In this paper we present a design method for a modular device used in different types of HIGH TIBIAL OSTEOTOMY surgical procedures. The requirements, necessities and functions of this modular device are presented in the first part of the article. An important aspect is the fact that the device must be designed in a manner which permit to use it for all types of HIGH TIBIAL OSTEOTOMY: opening wedge osteotomies, closing wedge osteotomies, medial osteotomies, lateral osteotomies, uniplanar osteotomies or biplanar osteotomies. This fact is possible using modular elements for the main parts of the devices. The researches could be the starting point for others researches regarding the appropriate materials and the possibility to execution customized several parts of the modular device using Additive Manufacturing facilities.
