Please see an orthopoedist ASAP. Your age means that bracing could resolve the problem in some cases. But it could mean you still need to be growing for best results, and that the eval sooner vs later is indicated. Good,luck

Before any such surgery is considered you need to establish your goal. Is there something I cannot do because of my legs that I want and wish I could? A podiatrist with custom orthotics can make vast changes in functional genu Valgum. I have helped many young women with this condition which is common. Women have a wider Q angle thus the knee cap doesn’t track properly. Conservative Therapy work
