Dr. K is trained in the Ponseti Method for correcting clubfoot and has performed this protocol on hundreds of patients. Placing the baby's feet in casts is an essential part of the treatment. During the casting process, Dr. K gently moves the baby’s clubfoot toward the correct position of a normal foot and then places the clubfoot in a tiny plaster cast to hold it. Every five to seven days after that, the baby’s clubfoot is gradually moved by about 10-15 degrees and placed in a new cast.

Usually, five to six casts are used in the Ponseti Method. However, very stiff feet may need eight or nine casts over two months. After the casting is over, the baby will need to wear a foot brace for three months, 23 hours a day, to hold the foot in the correct position.
