Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. We will actually have to evaluate you as in the cause of your bow legs, also we need to know the difference in the lengths of the two limbs, for which I will need your full length x rays and a ct scannogram for evaluation. Also if you are in the delhi ncr region, it will be advisable if you can come for a physical examination so that I can see and advise you accordingly. Complications depend upon what surgery has been decided in your case so it is difficult for me to generalize potential complications associated with it. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.
