Topic: Treating the older child: Untreated and Recurrent Clubfoot
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.
This is the third in a series of three webinars produced by our partner Steps Clubfoot Africa and sponsored by Steps Worldwide.
WEBINAR SERIES OVERVIEW
The Ponseti Method which has become best practice in the past 20 years is a specific protocol developed by Dr Ignaçio Ponseti in the mid 20th century. As the Ponseti Method grew in popularity it became apparent that although it is very well adapted for use in countries with restricted resource settings, there are challenges that still need to be resolved.
This webinar series for health professionals provides an opportunity to discuss the latest studies and knowledge.
