Hello Dadang, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
Letter O leg or also called genu varum is a condition that is often found in children. In children, genu varum can be a physiological condition (normal), can also be pathological (caused by certain diseases). In the physiological genu varum, the shape of the foot will usually improve by itself after the child is 2 years old. If the genu varum occurs to adolescents / adults or if it occurs in adults, then the genu varum is likely to be caused by certain diseases, such as Blount disease, Ricketsia, bone dysplasia (such as acondroplasia, pseudoacondroplasia, etc.), asymmetrical growth (for example due to fractures / broken bones, bone infections, bone cancer, etc.).
If found in adolescents or adults, the only way to improve the condition of genu varum is to do an operation called osteotomy. Until now there is no other way that is known to improve genu varum in adolescents / adults without osteotomy. We recommend that you discuss again with your orthopedic doctor to find out more about the examination and treatment you need.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
