Carolina was born with a severely pronated ankle and foot. For the first five years of her life she mostly staggered and fell while trying to walk. She then had surgery on her foot and tendons which has allowed her to walk. However, her tendon is still too short, causing her to be unable to plant her foot fully on the ground. This condition will eventually affect her hi...ps and spine without any correction.
Dr. Gustavo, a respected pediatric traumatologist and orthopedist, will set up her surgery this week. She will be in a full leg cast for a month and a partial one the second month.
Thanks to Dr. Pablo Javier Salamea Molina for setting up this appointment and to all our supporters for allowing HKIE to continue our efforts help children like Carolina.
