Deformity correction refers to the process of adjusting or modifying musculoskeletal deformities—most commonly a leg deformity, foot deformity or ankle deformity, though it can be used for deformities of almost any part of the body—through surgery or the use of Orthopaedic devices. The deformities addressed by deformity correction usually stem from: congenital and developmental deformities, which are often present at birth and get progressively worse as the patient ages.
