Hello!

Genu varum, bowlegs refers to an outward curving, or bowing, of the legs. It is due to a deformity of the knees.

The treatment depends on the amount of deformity involved and then following it up with corrective surgery. I would suggest you to get your knee examined by an orthopedic surgeon, in whichever country near to you and where the cost is less. You can ask your doctor in Morocco to refer you.

After surgery, a cast or brace is used until the bone heals. Physical therapy can also help restore knee motion and strength.

Take care!
