Club Foot

Postby ThomasSharp » Wed May 03, 2017 9:56 pm

Talipes equinovarus (once called club foot) is a deformity of the foot and ankle that a baby can be born with. It is not clear exactly what causes talipes. In most cases, it is diagnosed by the typical appearance of a baby's foot after they are born. The Ponseti method is now a widely used treatment for talipes. This treatment gives good results for most children and so surgery is not usually needed to correct the foot deformity.
