Event info

Dr. Ponseti developed his protocol for infants. However, there were doctors who were faced with much older children once they established the Ponseti method in their country in the early 21st century. These doctors were the first to try the Ponseti method on much older children. There is still a problem of many untreated cases globally which is due to lack of awareness about clubfoot, or lack of means to provide or access treatment. There are also recurrent cases of clubfoot in older children globally that need repeat treatment. This webinar is intended to discuss the latest thinking on clubfoot treatment for the older child.
