How Do You Treat Deformities?

The correction of deformities involves the straightening of a bent or twisted bone that deviates from the normal alignment. Following the straightening procedure, the arm, leg, or foot regains its usual alignment and functionality.

Deformities can undergo correction through two distinct methods:

  1. Acute correction: Executed all at once during a surgical procedure.
  2. Gradual correction: Implemented slowly over the span of several weeks or months.

The selection of the optimal approach for each patient is determined by the doctor based on their individual circumstances.

To facilitate bone healing, patients are advised to abstain from nicotine in any form, ensure a diet rich in protein, and take vitamin and mineral supplements.
