Parents often struggle when their baby is born with an abnormality. They worry that the child will have a difficult road ahead and might be limited in what they can achieve. However, if your baby was born with clubfoot, there is no need to worry. Effective treatment is available, and most patients achieve a total correction of the deformity.
The good news for expectant parents is that clubfoot is very rare, only occurring in one out of every 1,000 births. Males are twice as likely to get clubfoot as females, so if you are having a girl, the chances are even less.
