Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will be there for you to go over all of your options in terms of clubfoot treatment and surgery in Issaquah. Regardless of the level of severity or whether or not your child has the deformity in both feet, you can rest assured that we will be there for your family every step of the way.
A Common Deformity
Clubfoot is actually one of the more common congenital birth defects that are present at birth. The actual name of the physical appearance of the feet will resemble that of a club, which is where the foot is turned and twisted inward and upward. This is a condition that actually takes place in about one out of every 1,000 births. This is a condition that will actually involve boys twice as often as it does girls.
Treatments For Clubfoot
Luckily, this is a condition that will respond very well to appropriate treatments that are employed in a timely manner. If there are ever serious complications, it is usually due to the treatment being either delayed or not being applied at all.
If it does seem like surgery may be in the future, our staff will work to try all non-invasive procedures first. When it gets closer to surgical intervention, we will be able to work with you and go over all of your options, talk with you about the healing time, and more. It is always our goal to be sure that your child gets the treatment that he or she needs and that you are fully informed throughout it all.
