Knee Deformities

Regaining Straight Legs and Strong Knees: Knee Deformity Correction at Medace Clinic

Knee deformities can cause pain, limited mobility, and affect your overall quality of life. At Medace Clinic, we understand the challenges these conditions present. We comprehensive care for knee deformity correction, utilizing advanced surgical techniques and a compassionate approach to help you achieve straighter legs and improved knee function.


Understanding Knee Deformities:

Knee deformities occur when the bones of your knee joint are misaligned, causing the leg to appear bowed outward (varus) or knocked inward (valgus). Here are some common types:

  • Varus deformity (bowleggedness): The knee appears bowed outward, with an increased space between the ankles when standing with feet together.
  • Valgus deformity (knock-kneed): The knees knock inward when standing with feet together, and the ankles may appear close together.
  • Patellar malalignment (misaligned kneecap): The kneecap (patella) sits out of alignment with the groove at the end of the femur, causing pain and instability.

Causes of Knee Deformities:

Several factors can contribute to knee deformities:

  • Congenital conditions: Certain birth defects can cause abnormal bone development, leading to deformities.
  • Growth plate injuries: Damage to growth plates in childhood can disrupt bone growth and cause leg misalignment.
  • Osteoarthritis: Joint degeneration can cause abnormal bone wear and contribute to deformities.
  • Obesity: Excess weight puts stress on the joints, accelerating joint degeneration and potentially worsening existing deformities.
  • Previous injuries: Fractures or ligament tears that heal improperly can lead to knee misalignment.

Symptoms of Knee Deformities:

Symptoms can vary depending on the severity of the deformity. Here are some common indicators:

  • Pain: Joint pain, especially on the inner or outer aspect of the knee, can worsen with activity.
  • Stiffness: Limited flexibility in the knee joint, making it difficult to bend or straighten the leg fully.
  • Arthritis: Deformities can accelerate the development of osteoarthritis.
  • Limping: An altered gait pattern to compensate for the misaligned knee.
  • Cosmetic concerns: The appearance of bowed or knocked knees can cause self-consciousness.

Diagnosis at Medace Clinic:

A thorough evaluation will be conducted to diagnose the cause and severity of your knee deformity. This may involve:

  • Detailed medical history: Discussing your symptoms, medical history, and any potential causes of the deformity.
  • Physical examination: Assessing your posture, gait, knee alignment, and range of motion.
  • Imaging tests: X-rays and possibly MRI scans will be used to visualize the bones and soft tissues around the knee joint.

Treatment Options for Knee Deformities at Medace Clinic:

The treatment approach depends on the type, severity, and cause of the deformity. Here are some common options:

  • Non-surgical treatments: Bracing, physical therapy, and weight management can help manage mild deformities and improve symptoms.
  • Osteotomy: This surgical procedure involves cutting the bone and realigning it to correct the deformity. This may be performed with plates, screws, or rods to hold the bone in the corrected position.

I had visited Medace Clinic in Kothanur for my Tennis Elbow issue in my right hand. I was recommended for Physiotherapy treatment. I underwent this treatment for 4 days in the clinic (daily visit for treatment) and was given few exercises to be done at home post that. I got a huge relief from this treatment. The Physiotherapist was very good. She had a good knowledge and was able to get to the exact pain and provided the treatment. My pain has reduced drastically and I am able to do the daily activities without any pain now. Will be joining back to gym as well in 4 to 5 days.

We consulted Dr. Geetika throughout my wife’s pregnancy. Without question, she is a gem of a person, soft spoken and very down to earth. The best thing about her is that you can message her with the slightest doubt on WhatsApp and she is available to respond. She will take the time to listen to you and provide you with the most effective advice to address your current situation and prevent future issues. She is very very easy to talk to. Never prescribed us any unnecessary tests or medicines. She guided us in detail at every step week after week, month after month. We are so happy and proud for having done this journey with her.
Dr. Noel Kumar at Medace Clinic is an exceptional doctor who truly cares about his patients. He has been treating my todler son for the past three months, he has recovered from his femur fracture completely and I have seen a remarkable improvement in his condition. His expertise in the field is very evident in the way he diagnosed, operated and provided post operative care. Dr. Noel takes the time to explain everything in detail and answer any questions we have. He is always available to address our concerns and provide us with the best possible care. The clinic is well-equipped and staffed by friendly professionals who go above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Noel and Medace Clinic to anyone looking for quality orthopedic care.
