Did you ever wonder about why people have Clubfoot?

Clubfoot is a condition most often encountered at birth.  It is characterized by a deformity of the foot where it is turned inward and down.  Unfortunately in many third world countries, it goes untreated and these children never walk.  Fortunately in the United States it is often identified at birth and treatment can begin.  The majority of cases can be treated successfully with a casting technique called Ponsetti Casting and occasionally a minor surgical procedure.  This is followed by bracing.  Unfortunately some cases require major surgical repair.  The case presented here is one in which an adult had residual deformity that came about after surgical correction as a child.  Whether you have a newborn with clubfoot or suffer from other foot deformities, the physicians at Indiana Podiatry Group will be able to help.
