Clubfoot

by Admin on April 29, 2012

Clubfoot affects a few percent of newborns. It is a deformity of the foot in which the most common form is the foot is plantarflexed, inverted and adducted. The condition can be isolated or part of a wider syndrome. one of the more popular forms to treat clubfoot is the Ponseti method which involves manipulation and casting of the foot to progressively correct it. If that does not help or the condition is rigid, surgery is the usual option.
