Taking into consideration the congenital diseases of the osteoarticular system, we can offer treatment of talipes equinovarus and other foot deformities, congenital hip joint dislocations and congenital spinal deformities. We treat patients suffering from the consequences of osteoarticular system diseases, for example neurological ones, including: infantile cerebral palsy or myelomeningocele.
