I RECENTLY OPERATED ON A YOUNG GIRL OF 16 YRS FROM AFGHANISTAN WITH BOTH KNEE TIBIA VARA ( BOWING OF LEGS ) SHE HAD GROSS DEFORMITY .NOW HER WALKING IS PAINFUL AND ALSO SHE GET FATIGUED VERY EARLY.

GENERALLY I OPERATE SUCH CASES ONE LEG AT A TIME SO THAT PATIENTS MOBILITY IS NOT HAMPERED ,BUT IN THIS SPECIAL CASE I HAD TO OPERATE BOTH IN ONE SITTING AS HER FAMILY HAD CAME FROM AFGHANISTAN FOR SURGERY ONLY AND FOR THEM COMING AGAIN WILL BE EXPENSIVE.
