We came to know about our son's club foot during the 2nd trimester sonography. We were in the USA at that time. We never heard about club foot then. We were worried and concerned about our son whether this deformity can be cured, whether he will be able to walk like a normal child, whether this will impact his growth as a normal child. Doctors explained us about the club foot and assured us that it's totally curable. Still we had our own doubts. We decided to come back to India as we have better support system here. After the delivery, we actually got to see the foot. It was tilted inword (90 degree inward). On the third day, Doctor Sameer Desai saw the foot and assured us that he will rectify the problem in two months. We started his treatment on the 7th day after the delivery. Treatment included casting the foot on weekly basis to try to correct it. After 5 weeks of weekly casting, we had his minor surgery and again 4 weeks of casting. Now the foot is totally recovered and he has to wear one shoe in his foot for next six months. We really feel that if clubfoot is properly treated, this deformity can be cured in early childhood with the help of skilled doctor. We are really happy that this is now cured and really greatful to doctor Sameer for treating him and guiding us through this turbulent peirod.

I was enjoying the beautiful days of my 2nd pregnancy. The happiness turned into fear and sorrow when we found via ultrasound sonography that the baby has developed left clubfoot. We were in trauma even though we had a family history of this problem as my father-in-law had same problem when he was born in 1947. There was hardly anything that doctor could do until the baby was born. We met Dr. Sameer Desai for our baby's treatment on 3rd day after his birth. He suggested Ponseti method of treatment which is different than the traditional method that includes months of casting and extensive reconstructive surgery. Sooner was better… so we started the treatment and our baby, Sharv, had his 1st cast on left foot on 8th day after his birth. The process that we went through when Sharv was being treated was amazing. We visited Dr. Sameer Desai weekly and he manipulated & casted Sharv's foot. After just 5 casts and a tenotomy, the correction was complete.Now Sharv is wearing splint for 23 hours a day; he will continue to wear till Sharv completes 1 year to prevent the chance of relapse. Sharv is 6 months old now and his left foot looked just like the right. We also have check-ups every month and so far Sharv's foot is doing great. Our experience with Dr. Sameer Desai has been and continues to be a great one. We owe a debt of gratitude to all of those involved in our baby's care. I am also extremely thankful to Dr. Ponseti, for dedicating his life for developing this method and for passing on his knowledge to help our children.

My wife Liji Vinod delivered a baby girl (Levia) on January 4th 2010.My child was identified with club foot birth defect. During intial sonography this defect was not identified. My Child was refered to Dr. Desai .By observing our child Dr Desai gave us the confidence of treating our child of club foot defect. My child was taken to doctor on the second day of birth.Club foot treatment was started on the second week of birth. The treatment was 3 months period. The treatment started with plastering on the leg to treat it to move the leg towards outside direction.Every week the plaster was put on new and end of the week removed to put a new one.This continued for four weeks. After the last plaster my child Levia was operated on the leg and then plastering was done. The plaster was kept for 1-1/2 months.My child is now 4 months old and she is treated for the club foot defect.the legs look absouletly perfect as normal child's leg.We are very grateful to Dr.Desai for his work.We are very happy to have him as our doctor.

We came to know of our child's CTV condition during sonography in the forth month of pregnancy . We had full faith in the our gynaecologist who assured us that this condition is fully correctable by plaster and physiotherapy . It was this faith that help us sail smoothly through the pregnancy without taking undue stress thinking about CTV condition . The treatment started with plaster after 10 days of delivery . Initially it was difficult to handle a small baby with plaster on but we guess all the hardships are small as compared to your child's heath and happiness.Religious physiotherapy by professionals and at home by us have gives positive results . We could see the difference as compared to the condition at birth . CTV condition can be fully corrected . We would like to assure all those anxious parents who's children have been diagnosed with this condition that with regular exercises your child can do all the physical activities as other children do . The happiest moment of our life was when our child took his first step and then onwards there was no looking back .This was possible only through systematic guidance by doctors .
