Wow, what a great week! miraclefeet has been at the Mexican Society of Pediatric Orthopaedics this week as part of the launch for the National Mexican Clubfoot Program.
The program consists of 7 comprehensive clubfoot clinics that practice Ponseti. The clinics have been launched as Regional Hubs - 7 clinics in 7 different states, strategically chosen based on excellence in the Ponseti Method and geographic location. These 7 clinics are the initial launch and as the program grows, more clinics will be established. The clinics are chosen to create a system of clinics that will diminish travel time required for families, thus increasing patient retention.
The program is a collaboration between miraclefeet, the Mexican Society of Pediatric Orthopaedics, Ponseti International Association, and the Mexican Clubfoot Foundation.
The coordinators of the Regional Hubs are experienced and enthusiastic Ponseti practitioners and are passionate about helping reach under served populations. They are excited to start using the new National Program materials to educate and reach more patients.
miraclefeet is incredibly honor to be a partner in this amazing partnership - and we are looking forward to sharing the progress with you, without whom such projects would not be possible!

Did you know that July is Make a Difference to a Child Month? Did you further know that miraclefeet believes that every month should be dedicated to enriching the lives of children? That’s why we work hard to ensure children in developing nations such as Brazil, Mexico, Nicaragua and India can walk normally and treat clubfoot with a non-invasive procedure using the Ponseti Method.
We have numerous stories about children who can now walk, run and play with their friends without the shame and stigma attached to clubfoot. A lot of these inspirational stories can be found on our website and we’d love to add more with your help. So how can you make a difference? Easy!
By giving to our Summer of Miracles Challenge you can help give the gift of walking to a child forever. You merely go online to our secure form and fill out the necessary information and hit send. It’s that easy. The money will be used to provide treatment to children, buy plaster and supplies for casting or for leg braces.
You can help children like Alino, Alan or Deborah who have already benefited from miraclefeet and its team of international doctors. Help make a difference in the life of a child this month and donate to miraclefeet today!
