Brief Answer: Surgical correction is an option. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. At this age bowed leg could not be reverted without surgical correction. If it is bigger and bothers you then breaking the bones and restraightening can be done. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care
