Correct your baby’s clubfoot with the Ponseti Method
How to correct a clubfoot in 3 steps
The complete procedure includes the following steps:
Phase 1: Placement of weekly corrective plasters
Each week a plaster will be placed on the clubfoot to correct it.
Phase 2: Ambulatory microincision
Once the maximum correction is obtained with the casts of the previous phase, in most cases, it is also necessary to make a small cut in the Achilles tendon.
Phase 3: Splinting (boots and bars) and follow-up
At 3 weeks, the last plaster of the previous phase is removed and we enter the last stage of the treatment. Finally, a orthosis is placed (two boots attached to a bar) to maintain and provide stability of the correction achieved with the casts.
