It is estimated that more than 100,000 babies are born world¬wide each year with clubfoot deformity. 80% of these babies are born in developing nations. Most of these are untreated or poorly treated. Neglected club¬foot causes crushing physical, social, psychological and financial burdens on the patients, their families, and the society. Globally, neglected clubfoot is the most serious cause of physical disability amongst all the congenital musculoskeletal disorders.

Clubfoot, also called congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV), is a congenital deformity involving one or both feet. The affected foot appears to be rotated internally at the ankle, resembling a golf club.   It is a relatively common birth defect, occurring in about one in every 1,000 live births. Approximately half of the children with clubfoot have it in both feet. With proper treatment in early childhood, these children can have normal looking feet and play outdoor sports like any other normal child.
