My mentor and the founder of the NY Ponseti clubfoot center - one of the oldest centers in the country to exclusively practice the Ponseti technique. We have treated hundreds of patients with almost 100% initial correction and published many papers on our work.

Learning the best treatment for clubfoot...

During my fellowship in pediatric orthopaedics at NYU-Hospital for Joint Diseases, I learned how to perform the Ponseti technique for clubfoot treatment in one of the first centers to use Dr. Ponseti's method outside of Iowa. Several years later, it was a great honor to be promoted to being the Director of the New York Ponseti Center. Our busy clinic treats clubfoot from infancy through adulthood, including idiopathic and syndromic cases. We are dedicated to achieving success through the Ponseti method of gentle manipulation and minimally invasive surgery.
