Before and After

This is a 28 year old girl who had great difficulty walking due to a severe case of Blount's disease.  She has lived with this disability since early childhood.  We performed her operation in September 2014 and recently removed her external fixator.  Due to the severity of her deformity it was necessary to perform a gradual correction.  Once corrected a period of time is necessary to allow bone consolidation and then the fixator is removed.  We are very thankful to Dr. Alexis for his assistance with this case and for his management of her postoperative care.
