My little boy was born with Talipes ~ clubfoot and has had operations and casts to treat them, they are ok but one foot is still slighlty turned in, will he have to have another operation?

I was born with bilateral club feet.  Luckily my son does not have them.  One of my feet was fixed with one surgery and casting.  The other needed multiple surgeries as I grew.  It really depends on if his foot worsens as his foot grows.  He may need more surgeries if it is not corrected.  But as long as he walks well you can probably hold off.  He will be fine, and a stronger person for his experiences.
