Deformity correction is the surgical adjustment or modification of bone that grows incorrectly as the result of a disease or condition, such as bowlegs or knock knee.

Common causes of acquired deformities include misaligned broken bones, osteoarthritis (a disease that causes the joints to degenerate), and conditions like cancer and thyroid disease that cause tumors, goiters, or other masses to form. Some acquired deformities may be visible, but many are not.

Bone correction is performed by cutting the deformed or angled bone and applying an external frame, using pins or wires passing into bone on each side of the correction site. The correction may be completed at the time of surgery and the frame simply used to stabilize the bone ends whilst they join / unite.
