Procedures
Bow Leg Correction

Bow leggedness, also known as Genu varum is referred to the medial angulation of the tibia and the femur. Recognized with varied terms such as bandiness, tibia vara, and bandy leg, the bow-legged condition is characterized by outwardly bending of the knee and inner inclination of the tibia from the thigh's axis, thereby giving a bow-like appearance to the affected. Blount's disease or bow-legged condition is more common among females than it is in other genders. Besides, most athletes are also seen to be bow legged.

The condition is mostly recognized among children and adolescents and may result from malnutrition, or various diseases such as rickets, that hinder ossification of the bones. Apart from that, physical trauma, as well as other occupational causes may result in the emergence and persistence of the condition. However, irrespective of the cause, bow leg correction is possible with proper treatment and management.
