The tibia (shinbone) is the second largest bone in the human body after the femur. It is a long bone and its major features include the tibial plateau, medial and lateral condyles (proximal), tibial tuberosity, and the medial malleolus (distal). The tibia is securely connected to the fibula by the interosseous membrane of the leg, which limits relative movement between the two bones.
