What is Clubfoot?

Also known as: talipes, congenital talipes equinovarus, CTEV.

Clubfoot is a medical condition in which an infant’s foot or feet are turned inward, either to the side or almost facing upward. It’s a common birth defect, and most children can have the deformity corrected with proper treatment that begins shortly after birth.
