Hi. I am 24 yrs old. I was born with a bow leg. I inherited this from my father. Growing up, I've had a very low self esteem becuse of it. I want to know if it is possible to correct this deformity at my age. I want my leg to be straightened as this will go a long way in building back my self esteem.
This can be fixed. You must seek out a reconstructive orthopedic surgeon. That doctor will get some x-rays and determine if the leg can be straightened with surgery. The problem may be rehabilitation if your muscles are too short on one side.
hi, i am 21 years old, i had my surgery about 7 years ago that the doctors extract part of my foot bones out of my leg because of the decease i had, after that my foot ankle is unable to move left and right side and further more my leg is shorter den my other leg, is there a surgery to make my leg normal again?
