IGPPPM (Italian Group for Promotion and Protection of Ponseti Method) was created 5 years ago to spread the Ponseti method in Italy and to defend the correct application of the method. IGPPPM collects data on the use of the Ponseti method throughout Italy and provides continuous supervision of new hospitals that claim to apply the method.
