Abstract: Clubfoot is one of the commonest congenital conditions seen in orthopaedic practice. Though congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV) exists from time immemorial, its etiology is unknown, pathology is complex and management is full of controversies. Till today, the orthopaedic surgeons are constantly confronted with new techniques and operations in its management. It requires judicious selection of cases and use of appropriate method of treatment. We have passed through the phase of forcible manipulation of clubfoot to microsurgical operative techniques and correction by external fixator. In spite of careful research it remains a source of dissatisfaction even to most enthusiastic surgeons. This study consists of treatment of idiopathic clubfoot conservatively using Ponseti technique.
