Working for the second time with one of the most experienced Clubfoot expert of all times, Dr. Anna and her acquaintance Dr. Marta, Silvia and Francesca; ZCF project of LMRF is flying high with full of excitement, new knowledge and acknowledgement she had received in this 2 weeks of memorable journey. This was tremendous experience for all staffs, members and patients of ZCF which will take us many step ahead in terms of providing high quality clubfoot and disability services in coming days.

During this visit, they had traveled to 5 districts of Chittagong division where ZCF has been serving clubfoot patients since 2010, tirelessly observed more than 150 patients with clubfoot and other deformities, shared their immense experience with ZCF clinical team, performed amazing surgeries to 14 selected patients. Moreover, they also evaluated our treatment method and quality as they did last year and expressed their sheer satisfaction on the quality of service and overall outcome of Ponseti treatment provided by ZCF.
According to the two delegates from Italy, ZCF is providing much better Ponseti Treatment than any experienced doctors in Italy and they are going to circulate our achievement in Italian media after going back. It is worth mentioning that it was their second visit and they have planned to visit our activities at least once in a year. Not only this, they also have already connected to our virtual clinical network to provide valuable opinion for critical cases.
