Pre-Labor Period Treatment

I have just learned from my ultrasonography result, my baby will have clubfoot. What should I do?
In conclusion: Clubfoot deformity does not cause any permanent disability if treated promptly. We obtain almost full correction in most cases. We would like to start the Ponseti Casting treatment in a week following birth. Therefore, you may set an appointment with a Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon to plan the treatment of your baby. Children with clubfoot do not have any difficulty in daily activities and sports following successful treatment.
