Kid underwent a CT scan.

Kid received a CT scan, and results indicate various orthopedic conditions such as partial dislocation of the kneecap and trochlear dysplasia, which cause knee pain and resulting instability. It also shows prominent lateralization of the tibial tuberosity. Doctors are planning to operate on Kid and are going to schedule a date for surgery promptly. With this CT, Kid’s treatment will hopefully be as tailored to his needs as possible.

Kid is a nine-year-old boy living in Burma who has a left clubfoot. Kid was born at home with the help of a traditional birth assistant. He has had a clubfoot since birth, but his parents were unable to find treatment for him.

In 2016, one of the teachers from the local boarding school visited his village and noticed Kid’s clubfoot. Being familiar with the work of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), he advised Kid’s parents to be seen at BCMF for further evaluation.

Clubfoot is a congenital foot abnormality in which the foot is twisted out of shape or position. As a result, the tendons in the limbs are shorter than usual, and further complications of limited movement and stability may occur. When treated early enough, clubfoot can be corrected with physical therapy, but after a threshold of development, orthopedic surgery is necessary.

Kid’s surgeon would like to have an additional CT scan to evaluate his treatment plan for Kid’s clubfoot. The imaging must be done at the nearest hospital, but Kid’s family is unable to afford the travel. The total cost of the imaging and travel is $469, and Kid’s appointment is on March 30.

Following his CT scan, Kid’s surgeons will be able to continue planning for surgical intervention for his clubfoot. Kid says, “I want to be able to walk better.”
