Clubfoot is when a baby’s foot points down and turns in. This can lead to serious problems with walking. That’s why we treat kids early — a week or two after birth if possible. To get the best results, most babies at Nemours Children's have clubfoot treatment without major surgery. Nemours orthopedic specialists (doctors who work with the bones and muscles) use a method that gently and gradually moves a baby’s foot into the correct position.
At Nemours, we personalize clubfoot care for each and every baby. The services we offer depend on your child’s needs and location, and may include:
