I have read that Tall correcting some bowing in his tibia's with precise internals
with Dr M.

Is there a limit of the amount of bowing that can be corrected with tibia's
using internals?

It seems as though using externals is the go to option for correcting bowlegs

I am curious as to the reason for this.

It's because with internals the nail goes in your bone canal. So you are limited as to the degree of correction that can be accomplished by the angle the nail is inserted + the amount you lengthen the bone. With externals, no nail is inside the canal allowing for corrections that need to be made that are more extreme. I forget the degree of correction that Dr. M told me is possible with internal lengthening.

There are internal methods for bowleg correction, but you would have to do the bowleg correction separately from the lengthening.

The International Centre of Anthropometrical (Orthopaedical) Cosmetology and Correction offers the unique possibility to correct  bow legs and knock knees
We succeeded to significantly reduce the period of treatment and the risk of complications during the treatment.  It takes only 8-9 weeks from surgery to the moment when the person is able to walk freely.  The scars left by the needles are only 2-3 cm long and get invisible after a few months.  Our patients start walking on the 3d day after the operation and soon donít need crutches to walk.   
It is notable that the very process of correction is stepwise and lasts 7 - 14 days.  Correction  goes on up to the moment when both  the surgeon and the patient agree that the best esthetic result has been obtained.
For correction the apparatus for external fixation designed in our Center is used.  The frames are fixed on both legs during the operation.  Besides being cosmetic, correction surgery prevents problems with joints which often arise in bow-legged people with age.  The knee joints bear two thirds of a personís weight and straight legs help evenly distribute the weight by correcting the axis.   
During treatment we use a special computer system for surgery planning and determining individual parameters of dynamic characteristics of the frames.
