Dr Venkatram Thalapalli - Treatment for Congenital Vertical Talus at Banjara Hills

Expert in Congenital Vertical Talus Treatment at Kukatpally

Congenital Vertical Talus (CVT), also known as congenital convex pes valgus, is a rare foot deformity that is present at birth. It occurs due to a combination of neuromuscular and/or chromosomal abnormalities that affect the development of the bones, joints, and muscles in the foot.

CVT is characterized by a rigid flatfoot deformity, where the foot is pointed upwards and the heel is turned inwards. This results in a rocker-bottom appearance of the foot. The deformity can be painful and make it difficult to walk or wear shoes.

CVT is usually diagnosed at birth or shortly thereafter.

The exact cause of CVT is not known, but it is believed to be a result of abnormal development of the foot while in the womb.

Symptoms of CVT include a visible deformity in the foot, difficulty in walking, and pain.

If left untreated, CVT can lead to significant foot deformities, muscle imbalances, and arthritis.

Treatment options for CVT include manipulation, casting, and surgery. Manipulation and casting are usually the first line of treatment for infants. In severe cases or cases where manipulation and casting have been unsuccessful, surgery may be required.

Dr. Venkatram Thyalapalli MBBS, MS (Orthopedics) has years of experience in treating CVT and other foot and ankle deformities. He specializes in providing personalized treatment plans that are tailored to each patient's unique needs.

He has successfully treated numerous patients with CVT and helped them regain their mobility and alleviate pain.

He is an expert in diagnosing the condition with precision. This is a medical condition that has to be treated as early as possible as it might cause further deformity if left untreated.

If your child is experiencing symptoms of CVT, it's important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Book an appointment with Dr. Venkatram Thyalapalli, the best pediatric orthopedic surgeon in hyderabad on call or online.
