Orthopedic Question

Hi, I'm 20 years old. As a child I had femor anteversion, I went through physical therapy. I have always had flat feet, left foot worse than right. My left foot is so turned inward that it has caused my knee to turn in when I walk/run. I plan to discuss this with my Dr, what options will they give me ? Will they say knee replacement? Or surgery ? Or bionic leg ?

Would it be corrective surgery on my foot or knee ?

Hi there!

Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation; though usually a surgical correction is likely to be advised in the situation. Joint replacement/ bionic leg are not usually considered in mild-moderate cases, especially in young adults.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!
