Even though clubfoot is well known for being a fairly common birth defect, it is never easy for any parent to learn that their newborn boy or girl has it in one or both feet. Our professional staff at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic has been working with patients just like your child for many years, and we can offer your family the answers necessary for quality clubfoot treatment and surgery in Mukilteo.
This is a condition that is usually more common if there is a sibling or a parent that was also born with one or more clubbed feet. Additionally, clubfoot is a condition that you will usually see as a more common occurrence in boys than in girls. In order to treat this condition, it is all about the gradual shifting of the bones to work on proper alignment before the time that the child tries to learn to walk. For most parents, it is best to start treatment within the first couple of weeks after birth.
The clubfoot condition is not known for being painful for the infant and the treatment procedures are generally done gradually as to not cause a great deal of discomfort. If it does seem as though your child will need to have surgical intervention as treatment, we will make sure that we do all that we can to keep you well informed and that you understand the healing process involved.
