Is the deformity hereditary?

Although children with congenital malformations are commonly born with certain genetic disorders, acquired diseases or traumas can also cause malformations from time to time.

What is the appropriate age range for deformity surgery?

There is no age at which deformities are not appropriate. At this point, treatment should be planned based on whether the deformity will improve or worsen as the person grows. Bone age is important in planning treatments, but depending on the extent of the deformity, these treatments can be planned at any age.

Do I need physiotherapy after deformity surgery?

Physiotherapy and rehabilitation are absolutely essential after these surgeries. Depending on the surgery, muscle weakness and limited joint movement may occur from time to time. Early physiotherapy can be very useful for patients to overcome this process quickly.
