Introduction: Post-traumatic sequelae of the tibia are a common problem faced by orthopedists every day. The Ilizarov method, through careful planning, has achieved great results. Objective: To assess the outcome of the treatment of post-traumatic deformities and discrepancies of the tibia treated with the Ilizarov circular fixator. Methods: Thirteen patients were evaluated by clinical and radiological criteria during a minimum follow-up of 24 months. The results were good and excellent in all cases, and bone consolidation was achieved in all patients. Conclusion: The Ilizarov method is useful and versatile to solve any type of post-traumatic sequelae of the tibia, without the need for grafts or bone substitutes.
