Clubfoot

What is Clubfoot?

Clubfoot, known medically as congenital talipes equinovarus, is a congenital deformity present in about every 1,000 births. The condition is more common in males than females and can affect either one or both feet. 

 

An infant with clubfoot will have feet that point down and inward. Clubfoot is not painful but should be corrected as quickly as possible to avoid from having the deformity last for a lifetime. 

 

In most cases, clubfoot can be fully treated if taken on as urgently as possible. Generally casting of the feet and legs will be enough to fix the deformity but in a severe case surgery might be necessary.
