Abstract Share this page

Clubfoot is one of the most common pediatric orthopaedic conditions. Until recently, surgical management was the treatment of choice. Nonoperative treatment techniques, including the Ponseti casting and French physical therapy methods, have peeked interest of orthopaedists eager to find a less aggressive treatment method that can assure a lasting, good result. Both methods have proven successful in reducing the number of patients requiring extensive surgical release and, as a result, have become an integral part of pediatric orthopaedic practice. A clear understanding of both treatment methods is important for the orthopaedic nurse to allow quality nursing care and help assure a successful outcome for young patients.
