Hi there!

Yes, this could possibly be corrected. I would suggest consulting an internist and an orthopedician for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

Hi again!

You can get in touch with an internist (internal medicine specialist) at the nearest university/ teaching hospital with possible referral to an orthopedician; or you could choose any internist/ orthopedician in your area.

Take care!
