An osteotomy device and method therefor, is provided that allows the surgeon to establish a reference external to the bone as to the position of the apex and angle of the wedge to be cut and then to make use of an integral saw guide to translate those references into the bone as saw cuts which precisely remove the required wedge of bone. Thus this device and method therefor would enable the surgeon to leave a sufficient amount of residual bone after making the cuts into the bone (for example of a wedge of bone) so as to inhibit the fracturing of the bone.
