Ways to help you find out what you can do if you suffer from clubfoot.
Clubfoot is a curable deformity. Dr. Ignacio V. Ponseti, an orthopedist whose gentle, nonsurgical method of correcting clubfoot has become the global standard for treatment, is helping thousands of children to walk. MD Orthopaedics is a manufacturer of clubfoot products, plus a resource for practitioners and parents. Founder John Mitchell worked side by side with Dr. Ignacio Ponseti to develop clubfoot products. They are the only clubfoot products endorsed by Dr. Ponseti himself.
