A staged method of surgical management for congenital talipes equinovarus is described. The hindfoot was corrected and rebalanced early in 125 feet, and in 66 feet a second-stage medial forefoot correction was performed in the second, third or fourth year. The hindfoot relapsed in 19% and the forefoot in 9%; these feet were treated by further soft-tissue surgery. No bony operation was necessary. Assessment before and after operation allows comparison with other series.
