Clubfoot is a birth deformity that causes one or both feet to twist inward. But for all concerned parents, there is a solution. At the Global Rainbow Foundation, with the help of the NGO step by step, clubfoot can be treated using the Ponseti method, which has a success rate of 90% and does not affect the child’s physical development.
This treatment consists of 4 steps:
– weekly application of slab (up to 4-6 weeks)
– percutaneous tenotomy of the Achilles tendon (micro-invasive surgery)
– wearing a splint, a bar with boots at each end preventing the foot from twisting back(to be worn until the age of 5 years)
