My child recently injured his leg while playing sports. Now his kneecap hurts. How dangerous is it for him if we do not apply surgery? What should be done in such situations?

Hey. I'm sorry your child hurt his leg. By the way, I had the same situation last week, so that's why I paid attention to your post. I hurt my knee very badly and couldn't visit the doctor in any way so that he'd tell me how to treat my knee. I started searching the internet for answers and came across a great article about knock-knee or genu valgum. Perhaps this will be useful to you too. Good luck!
