I have cubitus valgus in left hand as a result of old fracture , 
one month back  i treated with ulnar nerve transposition , 
can i treat my elbow angel?

Cubitus valgus elbow: Angulation can place "tension" on the ulnar nerve and result in what is at times referred to as a tardy ulnar nerve palsy.
