In the present study, 76 club feet were included out of which 15 cases were treated with JESS, 20 cases were treated with surgical procedures like posteromedial soft tissue release with or without bony surgery and the rest 41 cases were treated with manipulation and repeated corrective casts. On an average 3 weeks of distraction is required to correct the deformity, following which the assembly was held in static position for 4 to 6 weeks and then after removal of the assembly, B/K pop cast was given for 6 weeks. Correction thus achieved was maintained with orthotic device. Out of 15 cases treated, 9 had excellent results, 3 had good results and in rest of the 3 cases, correction could not be achieved; later on they required additional surgical procedures.
