I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Cubitus varus deformity may occur because of growth disturbances, but it probably results from malreduction of the supracondylar fracture with medial displacement of the distal fragments. Cubitus varus deformity, also known as bow-elbow is unsightly in appearance and does not cause functional disability. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.
