Clubfoot Surgeon in Delhi
What is clubfoot?
Clubfoot( टेढ़े-मेढ़े पैर ) describes as a range of foot abnormalities usually present at the time of birth in which your child’s foot got twisted out of shape or position. In clubfoot, (टेढ़े-मेढ़े पैर ) the tissues connecting the muscles to the bone are shorter than usual. It is a fairly common birth deficiency and is usually an isolated problem for an otherwise healthy newborn.
If your child has clubfoot, (टेढ़े-मेढ़े पैर) it will make it harder for a child to walk normally or even stand in severer cases, so doctors generally recommend starting treatment soon after birth.
Doctors can treat clubfoot without surgery in most cases but in severe cases, surgery is required with the basic treatment.

Symptoms of Clubfoot
- The top of the foot is usually twisted downward and inward, increasing the arch and turning the heel inward.
- The foot may be turned so severely that it actually looks as if it’s upside down.
- The affected leg or foot may be slightly shorter.
- The calf muscles in the affected leg are usually underdeveloped.
Diagnosys of Clubfoot
Clubfoot can be diagnosed even before a baby is born by Ultrasound. Or after birth by observing the appearance and movement of the baby’s feet and legs your doctor can advise you on the most appropriate treatment or refer you to a doctor who specializes in child bone and muscle treatment (pediatric orthopaedist).
The deformity is obvious and apparent and can be diagnosed immediately after birth.
Despite its look, clubfoot itself doesn’t cause any discomfort or pain at the time of birth.
The most important symptom of clubfeet is the foot looking deformed and twisted like the club of the golf stick. But the child will experience discomfort and find it difficult to walk if clubfoot is not treated properly and timely. The child may find it difficult to wear shoes and participate in physical activities. Sometimes foot size of affected side appears smaller than normal side.

Surgical Club foot Treatment
Although many cases of clubfoot are successfully corrected with nonsurgical methods.
But sometimes the deformity cannot be fully corrected or it returns, often because parents have difficulty following the treatment program or some infants have very severe deformities that do not respond to stretching.
Major reconstructive surgery for clubfoot involves the extensive release of multiple soft tissue structures of the foot.
After 4 to 6 weeks, the doctor will remove the pins and cast, and typically apply a short-leg cast, which is worn for an additional 4 weeks.
After the last cast is removed, it is still possible for the muscles in your child’s foot to try to return to the clubfoot position, so special shoes or braces will likely be used for up to a year or more after surgery.
The most common complications of extensive soft tissue release are overcorrection of the deformity, stiffness, and pain.
Nonsurgical club foot Treatment
The initial clubfoot treatment is non-surgical as it depends on the severity of the foot deformity.
Treatment should ideally begin shortly after birth, but older babies have also been treated successfully with this method. Elements include:
- -Manipulation and casting.
- -Achilles tenotomy
This method has proven extremely effective for many children. It does, however, require the not worn as prescribed family to be highly committed to applying the braces properly every day. If the brace is not worn as prescribed, there is a high likelihood that the clubfoot will recur.
