I have noticed over the past year that my legs are not straight. The main break in their line appears at the knee joint. I should mention that my elbows are double jointed but they don't look as odd as my knees. I find myself unable to wear anything above the knee because of what I consider to be a possible deformity. Is there anyone who could identify the problem? Are there any surgical and non-surgical solutions for this?

I agree with the other doctors.
I does appear that there is a length difference in the legs. Surgical options will leave scars, if you can find someone who can do it. There are orthotic devices to help even out the lengths.

I agree with Dr. Rand. In China, they have performed somewhat elective procedures to lengthen legs but this is not really an option that is offered to patients in the USA. I would meet with an orthopedic surgeon first.
