Orthopedic is there a way to corrrect a shorter leg and leg is turned outside from a knee dislocation at a very young age for this 22 y/o male...Any doctors that does this type of surgery just like a vet who turned the kitty legs because it was backwards?
THERE : There are answers to both problems. If all is intact above the tibial plateau (if you are talking about the same leg), a leg lengthening can be done up to a certain degree, and a derotation osteotomy can also be done. Gaining lenght is more limited than derotation. Both have limits and risks. If done at the same time more so. It can be done and it depends why you want it done. For function ok, cosmetic reasons no. Remember there is no problem so bad in orthopedics that it can't be made worse by surgery! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Severity depends: Entirely on location, displacement, joint involvement, bones fractured, compound or closed, and involvement of adjacent blood vessels, nerves, and soft tissue. I don't think it is critical in the sense that you probably will not die from it, but any fracture could be serious. In the lower extremity, amputation is always possible.

Rheumatoid arthritis or other rheumatologic diseases can affect insertions sites of tendons, called enthesopathies. However, the primary target of rheumatoid arthritis is the synovium (lining of joints). Tendons also have a synovial lining and that's why they are affected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
