What is Clubfoot in Babies?
Clubfoot is a hereditary condition that is diagnosed soon after birth, or via ultrasound prior to birth. One or both of the affected child’s feet turn inward and point in a downward direction.
Clubfoot Treatment Options
A pediatric orthopedist can coordinate a wide range of treatments to correct clubfoot, including casting, physical therapy and surgery, when necessary.
