What should I do if I have a baby with a club foot?

What should I do if I have a baby with a club foot?

The casts are removed & reapplied over days & weeks to bring the bones into better alignment. If the casts don't bring things into position surgery may be required. Often you can find this specialized service at one of the shrine hospitals.

My husband has a cousin born with club foot. I’ve heard this is a genetic condition. Should I be worried about my baby?

No: There is a genetic component involved but this is small. If present, this can be usually detected at the 20 week ultrasound. If it is detected at this time, then is is important to rule out other malformations. If club foot is the only anomaly, an orthopedic surgeon evaluates the baby and outlines a treatment plan that involves physical therapy and perhaps surgery.
