Officially in the U.
S. That frequency varies significantly by region and by country, although the reasons why the rates are different are not known. Clubfoot is typically diagnosed at birth and treated as soon as possible, typically by non-operative means. However, 10-20% of children with clubfoot still require corrective surgery, even with appropriate and timely non-operative treatment.
