Non-Surgical Clubfoot Treatment Using The Ponseti Method
When your newborn baby has clubfoot it means that one, or both, of the feet turn inwards at the ankle. They appear to be walking on their ankles, or on the sides of their feet. The good news is that clubfoot can be easily treated, but it’s best to do it as early as possible while bones are soft and can gently be moved into the corrected position. Clubfoot can even be detected in the womb before birth during an ultrasound examination.
Dr. Khosroabadi (Dr. K) uses the Ponseti treatment, which is a slow and gradual realignment of the foot. First, there is the casting phase – usually done at week one after birth - that gently moves the foot to the correct position. Then there is the bracing phase that makes sure the foot stays there. The casts and braces are temporary. This non-surgical treatment is simple, low cost, non-painful and, in the hands of a trained doctor, very successful. Lean more about Clubfoot.
