New AI technique has made teenage girl’s crooked legs straight at a hospital here. A 19-year-old girl, Ayesha from Himachal Pradesh, was born with Bowlegs. It is condition in which a person’s legs appear bowed (bent outward) even when the ankles are together.  Bowlegs, also referred to as crooked legs in medical terminology, demonstrate an intriguing interconnection among genetics, growth, and overall well-being. While they occasionally manifest as a natural skeletal variance, they might also indicate deeper health issues.

Using a novel AI-assisted technique, doctors have straightened her crooked legs. Doctors resorted to Iliozarov fixator and Six-axis correction software to correct her deformity. During her school years, this condition led Ayesha to become increasingly introverted, grappling with feelings of inferiority and struggling to engage socially due to her condition.

After exploring several hospitals, Ayesha’s family’s was referred to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital where she got the new life. Incorporating Robotic Software technologies into Ayesha’s treatment plan underscores the hospital’s commitment to leveraging cutting-edge advancements in medical science to enhance patient care, said the hospital.

Dr. Manish Dhawan, Senior Deformity Correction Surgeon at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital says “Six Axis Correction & computer software were used to correct her deformity. This is a Hexapod which has 6 legs and can move in any direction and this technology was also used in Chandrayaan Pragyan Rover (6 legs).

The medical techniques used in Chandrayaan are coupled with the Six axis correction software, which harnesses the power of computer-aided design and simulation. The iliozarov Fixator and Six axis correction software highlights the innovative approach taken by the Orthopedics medical team at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. These tools likely played a crucial role in correcting her leg deformities effectively and also helped her with increasing her height with 2 inches. Ayesha’s bravery and the support she received from her family, combined with the surgical expertise of Dr. Manish Dhawan undoubtedly contributed to her successful journey through the challenging surgical process. The skillful collaboration between professionals and strong support networks results in positive outcomes for patients like Ayesha.

Dr. Brajesh Nandan, Senior Consultant Orthopedics, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, says, “Sir Ganga Ram Hospital is the top hospital for treating more than 100 cases of referred deformity patients. It is important to address these health issues, especially in places where shortages are prevalent. Their dedication to treating this condition and providing high-quality medical care to those in need is demonstrated by the fact that they have treated more than 100 cases.”
