External Tibial Torsion in a Teenager

Patient : I have visible external tibial torsion and will be visiting a specialist in a few weeks, I would like to know if I should be expecting surgery. This causes me discomfort, and some pain, mostly a dull annoying ache. I am fourteen years old.
Doctor :   Tibial Torsion can be treated non-surgically but this is often ineffective. Given your age and the presence of symptoms I am sure your doctor will suggest surgical correction of this condition.
