Genu varum
I have a genu varum (bow legs) since childhood. Few days back i consulted an orthopedic, he suggested me if i'm not having any issues in walking, running or any other activities you should not undergo surgery. Be happy with it. I found this answer unhelpful, what would you suggest, while walking it looks really weird
