Leg polio affected. Using crutches. Can I get it operated?

I m Tunde Alamu (30) Nigerian. My left leg is affected by polio when I was 7, i was using cruches before changing to a metal device to aid the leg with cruches. I am a chartered accountant practising in Nigeria, i would really appreciate any offer to operate the leg or provide a device that will allow me to walk freely and better than the metal device i m using now. My email address is YYYY@YYYY for any help. Thanks Tunde Alamu (ACA)

pollio limb surgeries are possible but it needed expertise so you should meet a doctor who is well versed with all these surgeries. Also some time result are not predictable and can cause more weakness then it was before the surgery. So my opinion is that you should seek for expert opinion before planning any such surgery.
