Deformity Surgical Procedure

The most important criterion in treatment is age. At a young age, if the problem worsens as the patient grows, then treatments aimed at stopping the progression of the problem should be used first. To this end, there are also treatments to correct leg curvature non-surgically through the use of various orthoses, but they have not yet been shown to be effective.

The most common treatment in childhood is the placement of growth-guiding plates in areas of bone growth. These small plates straighten the bone in the desired direction.

This method is simple to perform and less risky than more difficult surgeries such as fractures and bone fractures. If the child is born later in life, and it is calculated that straightening by this method will not be sufficient, then the bones will need to be straightened by cutting them. This is usually the surgical method used in adulthood. X-rays are taken and a detailed examination is carried out. If the correction is made from which part of the bone, how many degrees of correction, what results will be achieved, and what the patient’s limb will look like are all calculated in a computer environment. The treatment plan is designed accordingly.
