Thigh bone, calf bowed inwards. Causes limping, pain when walking. Advised surgery. Suggestions?

Hello, My name is Omar Alanazi. I am 20 years old and i am from Saudi Arabia. Currently i am studying English in New Zealand. I have had a problem with my left leg since I was a child, which has progressively gotten worse as I ve gotten older. My thigh bone is very bowed inwards, and my lower leg ( calf area) is slightly bowed inwards. I have no problem with my knee . This causes me to limp, and sometimes gives me pain when I walk. I had an appointment in Saudi Arabia, with a doctor from Iraq. He took a x-ray of my leg and said I can have an operation to fix it. In seven months time I will finish my study in New Zealand and would like to have the operation done then. If possible I would like to speak with your doctor via email to discuss my problem and see if I can have the operation done at your clinic. Thank you for you your time, I look forward to hearin g back from you. Omar Alanazi

Thank for choosing,HCM, Omar you did not wrote any thing about the reports or said any thing about the diagnosis, it would help me to advise you in authentic way, the brief history you stated here is little suggestive of some kind of congenital genetic disorder, affecting you bones, which some time worsen, with time,, in my opinion you better have second opinion,, please be in touch with HCM.
