Treatment of Clubfoot Using the Ponseti Technique, at RSUD Lubuk Basung and RSUP Dr. M. Djamil Padang, Indonesia

The Ponseti method for management of infant clubfoot has rapidly gained favor world-wide in the last decade. Dr. Ignacio Ponseti (1914–2009) developed and pioneered this non-surgical method in the 1940s and collated outcome records spanning 40 years which showed very good results in terms of pain and foot function in more than 95% of typical congenital clubfeet.

The purpose of this study was to review prospectively the results of the Ponseti technique in the treatment of clubfoot.
