Congenital clubfoot is probably the most common congenital orthopedic disorder. In this disorder`s pathoanatomy; turning of the calcaneus, navicula and cuboid bones around the talus towards medial and plantar direction, and also shortening and tension of posterior and medial soft tissues play an important role. Beginning the conservative treatment as early as possible should always be the first step. However, surgery may be required in some cases. For these patients, surgical treatment for soft tissues will be able to provide correction of the deformity and may prevent the development of secondary bone deformities.
