Answer: Hello, Talipes Equinovarus (TEV), commonly known as club foot, is one of the most common orthopedic birth defects. The complex deformity is produced by tight ligaments and abnormal bones in the foot that cause the foot to be pointed downwards and turned inwards . Most clubfoot deformities can be treated successfully with casting initiated during the first few weeks of life. The casting is performed weekly and allows gradual correction of the deformity.. nothing to worry about your baby will be alright with proper treatment.

Question: Hello mam, i got done with level 2 scan yesterday nd my baby is diagnosed with bilateral club foot ..what should i do now.??m so stressed
Answer: Hi Dear! Club foot is a relative common birth defect. There are varying degrees and with treatment such as intense bracing which should most likely begin within the first few weeks of birth as their bones and joints are very flexible and easy to get treated. Sometimes it gets cured just by wearing shoes which are available and sometimes surgery. But the good news is it can be corrected so dont loose hope follow what your Dr. says and consult a Pediatric Orthopaedist for the issue. Wishing you the best!
