What Is the Treatment for Severe Toe-In Deformity of Feet?

Ask the experts

Is there a treatment for moderate to severe toe-in of feet?

Doctor's response

Toe-in deformity is common in infants and young children. Children with toe-in deformity (commonly also referred to as pigeon-toe) generally outgrow the condition with time. Sometimes certain stretching exercises are recommended. The physician can evaluate the child for problems of the hip or knees, which sometimes give a toe-in appearance. With severe toe-in deformity that persists after five years of age, surgical correction is sometimes considered, but this is not common.
