What Is Clubfoot?

  • Most common deformity of the musculoskeletal system in newborns
  • Occurs in about 1 in 1000 live births
  • Treatment should begin early, and can begin as early as the first few weeks of life

Cause: Unknown, likely genetic


Diagnosis is typically made during pregnancy on ultrasound or immediately after delivery.

  • If clubfoot is found on prenatal ultrasound, call for a prenatal consult!
  • We can go over the entire treatment process prior to the baby’s arrival to help ease concerns and answer any and all questions.
