Correcting Clubfoot Without Surgery: The Ponseti Method
June 29, 2017
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. This segment of The Balancing Act has ways to help you find out what you can do if you or someone you know has a child born with clubfoot.
On this episode, Beth Troutman tells her story; Christina Nicholson embarks on an adventure to Orlando with her family; and former football player Marc Bouniconti shares his journey.
Three decades later, Marc Buoniconti, a quadriplegic, visits The Balancing Act to talk about his life, his mission, and his goal to one day walk again.
The Balancing Act's host Christina Nicholson and her family are embarking on a fun-filled vacation to Orlando, Fla., also known as the "theme park capital of the world."
