Pes planovalgus – Our treatment

If left untreated, pes planovalgus can have negative consequences on your child’s entire musculoskeletal system. Treatment should thus take place as early as possible in childhood. The treatment of pes planovalgus usually takes place by means of conservative therapies, i.e. without surgery. Conservative measures include, for example, special exercises from physiotherapy or insoles for your child’s shoes. Surgery for pes planovalgus only makes sense if conservative treatments are not effective or sufficient. The specialists from our paediatric orthopaedics department in Hamburg specialise in the surgical correction of pes planovalgus and advise you in detail about the possibilities for your child’s optimal treatment.
