My son has bow legs that seem to be getting wider every now and then, it’s starting to cause him low esteem. Will surgery do the trick for us?

The surgery performed to correct bow-leg is an osteotomy. During this procedure, a bone is cut either to shorten or lengthen it, or to change its alingment entirely. An osteotomy procedure is generally used to reshape the bones and it is a complex type of surgery. After the operation, you may be in a wheelchair for three to four weeks. After this, crutches will need to be used until you are able to walk unaided.
The straw man argument is called “straw man” because it implies something that is of no substance. The straw man argument is when someone appears to be refuting an argument but distracts from the point by arguing something not relevant. In other words, the point of the argument is no longer directed at the topic but rather at something that is not really there- a straw man.
Bow legs are best treated during a child’s early years, while his body and bones are still developing. This is especially true if you’re considering the use of medical braces, shoes, or casts as a way of physically straightening bow legs. Of course, there are similar devices available for adults that are specially designed to help reduce joint pain and other bow leg symptoms. These can be very useful in the sense that they offer much-needed support for physical activity, exercise, and general daily movements.
