The Surgeons Perspective
My first impression of Jack was how remarkable he was. He had a significant deformity of his foot but despite this was working hard in a manual job and playing football and cricket regularly.
Jack’s opening line to me was that he had some toes that were crossing over making sport difficult. It very soon became apparent that he had a significant residual deformity from a condition he was born with called congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV). Colloquially this is called a club foot.
