Difficulties in sitting, standing, walking, and meeting personal hygiene can be faced and after a pediatric orthopedist’s evaluation, adductor tenotomy surgery is performed.
No casting is done after the surgery but if the orthopedist thinks it’s necessary, a brace can be used. If the age that the surgery is done is young, this surgical approach might be necessary again. The patients who were able to walk before surgery can walk after the surgery too. It is essential to use the prescribed medicines and to come for controls at 10th and 21st days after discharge.
