Description: The Newborn Foot: Diagnosis and Management of Common Conditions Nursing Center CE An assessment of the foot should be a part of every newborn physical examination. The newborn foot, although complex in structure, can be examined quickly in any office setting. Many foot deformities are diagnosed immediately after birth, allowing for earlier and often more successful treatment. A neonate with a foot deformity can be a source of anxiety to parents. Adequate knowledge of commonly encountered neonatal foot problems enables the nurse to give appropriate anticipatory guidance to the parents.
