If Your Child Is Born with Clubfoot
Clubfoot refers to a foot that points downward, with the toes turned in and the soles often facing each other. This bone and joint deformity can occur on its own, or in conjunction with other pediatric orthopaedic concerns. Typically, it is identified on an ultrasound during pregnancy or immediately after birth.
Referral to a Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon
Your child will be referred to a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon, who has undergone special training and is skilled in treating musculoskeletal disorders in children. Our pediatric surgeons work with a team of nurses and specially trained pediatric staff who are up-to-date on the latest developments. Families from across the state come to Duke for their children’s care.
