Three treatment options for club foot

Club foot is a birth defect that occurs when the foot does not develop normally in the womb. Recently, the use of Depakote during pregnancy has been linked to the development of birth defects such as club foot.

Although this may not be a fatal birth defect, it can cause mobility issues for children and the cost to treat it can be very expensive. The treatment for this condition includes surgery in order to repair joints and bones.

Surgical procedures are usually done between 9 months to 1 year. Another option is setting the foot in a cast or splint while it sits for a few days. In cases that are more mild, physical therapy can be done.  The earlier the treatment the better it is for the child’s development.

If you or a loved one has developed a club foot birth defect after being prescribed Depakote while pregnant, contact the Depakote club foot lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 today.T
