The Ponseti Method
Developed by Dr. Ignacio Ponseti at the University of Iowa, the Ponseti Method is a low cost, low-tech, non-surgical, highly effective treatment for correcting clubfoot deformity. For many children, though, getting access to something so basic is incredibly difficult.
Ponseti International Association (PIA), headquartered at the University of Iowa, is a global organization of hundreds of health professionals and advocates that engage in a wide range of activities to promote the Ponseti Method to treat clubfoot and prevent disability. More
