Leg length Discrepancy
Hi It looks like Tibia length matches but femur length doesn't align. There was some surgery done when age was around 2-3 yrs. Don't have any knowledge. Leg operated appears small. What would be suggestions before meeting a orthopedic doctor? Any x-ray required before meeting and any checks suggestion? Difference is around 2cm.
