An apparatus for placing a bone cutting saw cutting guide adjacent a proximal surface of a human tibia bone having an elongated rod inserted into the tibia for clampingly supporting a rotating bar on the central longitudinal axis of the tibia bone. The bar being extended from the rod and connected to a pivot device which in turn is connected to a support arm that holds a saw cutting guide against a proximal portion of the tibia bone. The rotation angle of the rod determining the medial-lateral inclination of the saw cutting guide and the pivot device determining the anterior-posterior inclination of the saw cutting guide. The support arm is adjustable in length to determine the height of the saw cutting guide.
