Child has undergone Tenotomy and surgery on limbs for clubfeet. Does CTEV affect growth?
good morning doctor, We, shobi and Anu parents of master Abhinav 4 yrs humbly forwarding a query regarding our child growth, who had been undergone TENOTOMY and surgery on both limbs for clubfeet. Is this CTEV affects his growth, or else any chance of reformation? Any precautions or remedies to be conduct again? Thank you.
Good noon, as such a properly corrected CTEV will not affect the growth of the child. precautions you need to take is to follow the ortopedicians orders and the use of corrective shoes or physiotherapy as adviced by your orthopedician.
