What Sets Us Apart

The New York Ponseti Clubfoot Center at the Center for Children, part of Hassenfeld Children's Hospital of New York at NYU Langone, is devoted to the treatment and research of clubfoot, a condition that causes the feet to turn downward and inward. Clubfoot is typically diagnosed during a prenatal ultrasound, though visual confirmation can also be made as soon as a baby is born.

From the moment of diagnosis, our team of orthopaedic doctors provides education and support to your family and ensures that your child receives immediate and effective care. Most of the babies treated at the New York Ponseti Clubfoot Center show improvement in the first weeks of treatment and learn to walk and run at a similar age to other toddlers.

More than 90 percent of these children require no further treatment and grow up to lead active lives. If your child needs additional care as he or she grows, our doctors offer follow-up treatment and rehabilitation services, ensuring that any changes in your child’s feet are addressed quickly and successfully. 

Treatment at NYU Langone

Our clubfoot specialists have been trained in the Ponseti method, a minimally invasive treatment in which casts and braces are used to gently reposition the foot. Working together, doctors and parents can help to ensure that this method permanently corrects a child’s clubfoot.
