Abstract: Total Knee Arthroplasty has enjoyed substantial favourable outcomes of late with the advent of new techniques and implantation. The procedure of choice - Total Knee Replacement becomes challenging when a patient is suffering from systemic diseases and severe anatomical deformities. Presented here is the case report of a 64-year-old female with known Rheumatoid Arthritis and severe extra articular deformity adding to her severe varus deformity thereby compromising her quality of life. We corrected the deformity followed by total knee arthroplasty in a single setting, imbued with the hope that the procedure had on offer for the said patient, a tremendous improvement in quality of life.
