I have a 21 months old baby, and she was born with twisted legs, which resulted from the cord around the neck issue during pregnancy. She was diagnosed with nerve atrophy in her legs. They said she might recover if the atrophy of her legs can be treated. She underwent motor nerve conduction study at the age of 6 months, and only the left leg showed a response. At the age of 13 months, they redid the same study and reported that the right leg started to show some response, which gave hope that her legs may get treated through physiotherapy. They recently did an MRI for the brain and reported that her brain is fine. The doctors recommended showing the case to an orthopedic, as her issue is not neurological. Can her twisted legs be treated through surgery or some other way rather than physiotherapy? I have attached the CT scan, MRI of the brain, and some pictures of the baby's leg. Please help.
