Dr. Sinclair is using the Ponseti method for club foot repair. With this method, Logan will be casted once a week, and after 5-8 weeks will undergo a procedure called a tenonotomy where he will make a small incision in the Achilles tendon to release tension in the heel. Logan will be re-casted and eventually move into orthopedic shoes and a brace. Dr. Sinclair is very optimistic that Logan's feet can be corrected without surgery, especially the right one which is not so tight. I have always wished that I had photos of my kids castings, so I took quite a few today to record the procedure.
The plaster is the most important part of the cast which corrects the alignment. The thigh is wrapped with fiberglass gauze. Fiberglass is then wrapped over the plaster portion. This helps keep the plaster cast on, and is more flexible and lighter than an all plaster cast.
