Idiopathic club foot is one of the most common problems in pediatric orthopedics. It is characterized by a three dimensional deformity of the foot and the ankle. Surgical treatment of the deformity was the accepted mode of treatment till recently. Prevalence of short term and long term complication by this method has renewed interest in the Ponseti method of treatment of serial casts and minimal surgery. The purpose of this study is to evaluate early results of treatment of club foot by Ponseti method. A total of 30 patients (44 feet) were treated by a single orthopedic surgeon in rural orthopedic care clinic over a period of two years and followed for a mean period of 31 months. We followed the standard scoring system in evaluating the deformity at the beginning and end of our follow up. Our results are excellent to good in 29 out of thirty patients and continued to be so at a mean follow up of period of 31 months.
