Clubfoot in babies – Our treatment

The treatment of clubfoot belongs in the hands of experts – the earlier professional treatment begins, the lower the probability of later movement restrictions as a result of a clubfoot. Our specialists in paediatric orthopaedics in Hamburg Eilbek have many years of clinical and scientific experience in the treatment of clubfoot in babies and children. As a rule, after a detailed clinical examination, they apply conservative measures to treat clubfoot in babies. The “standard” treatment here is the Ponseti method, in which the clubfoot is gradually rectified by means of weekly serial casting and a special splint. In the case of a severe clubfoot or a recurrent clubfoot (relapse), surgery is a sensible treatment option to permanently correct your child’s clubfoot. Our goal with every treatment is to enable your child to move freely.
