What is Clubfoot?

Clubfoot, also known as congenital talipes equinovarus, is a congenital deformity that affects the structure and positioning of a baby’s foot. It is characterized by the foot being turned inward and downward, resembling the shape of a golf club. This condition can occur in one or both feet and can range from mild to severe.

Causes of Clubfoot:

The exact cause of clubfoot is not fully understood, but both genetic and environmental factors are believed to play a role. It's important to note that clubfoot is not the result of anything the parents did during pregnancy—it’s simply a random occurrence.

Early Diagnosis and Treatment:

Diagnosing clubfoot can often be done shortly after birth through a physical examination. If your child is diagnosed with clubfoot, rest assured that early intervention is key to successful treatment. Dr. Sameer Desai, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon in Pune, specializes in treating clubfoot and has a wealth of experience in this area.

Treatment Options:

Ponseti Method: This is a non-surgical treatment approach that involves gentle manipulation and casting of the affected foot. The foot is gradually moved into the correct position over a series of weeks. Once the desired alignment is achieved, a maintenance phase with a brace is initiated to prevent relapse. Surgical Correction: In some cases, if the deformity is severe or the Ponseti
method is not successful, surgical correction may be necessary. Dr. Sameer Desai is skilled in surgical techniques for clubfoot correction and will discuss the
best course of action for your child’s individual case.
