3rd orthopaedic clinic at mangochi

There are 5000 children in Malawi with untreated club feet. Internationally renowned surgeon Steve Mannion and founder of Feet First Worldwide works regularly in Malawi and has now held three MACS funded clinics at Mangochi.

There are usually two days of screening of perhaps a hundred patients followed by two days of complex surgery for those selected as suitable. Just as important is the training given to local staff in much simpler techniques that they can use to correct club foot if diagnosed in the first year of life.
