Clubfoot (talipes equinovarus) is a congenital foot abnormality where a baby’s foot twists at the ankle, turning the foot inward. Club foot may be associated with other problems in a child but is most often “idiopathic”, meaning we don’t know why the child developed the club foot. As a result of advances in treatment, the majority of clubfoot cases can now be treated without surgery or with minimally invasive techniques.
