Dr. Matthew Dobbs will be at our Institute from October 12-14

We are pleased to announce that from October 12 to 14, 2023, our institute will be visited by a world renowned expert in the field of pediatric orthopedics, Dr. Matthew Dobbs MD!


Dr Dobbs developed the treatment for vertical talus. His technique to treat congenital vertical talus, a severe rigid flatfoot deformity present at birth, for example, has revolutionized the treatment of vertical talus and is now being utilized successfully across the world. He is also the leading wordwide expert in clubfoot. He developed a brace to maintain clubfoot correction. The brace, which bears his name, is utilized in over 50 countries and has helped thousands of clubfoot patients avoid relapse and the need for further intervention.

Dr. Dobbs has held leadership positions with the United States Bone and Joint Initiative as well as the Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons and is the recipient of multiple NIH-funded research grants. He directed several multicentered clinical trials and co- directs a musculoskeletal genetics research laboratory. He was awarded prestigious research honors: Hunterian Gold Medal (2002), Nicolas Andry Award (2017), and the Kappa Delta Award (2017). Dr. Dobbs also consults patients at Paley Middle East Clinic in Abu Dhabi and at West Palm Beach in USA.


At the heart of Dr. Dobbs’ expertise lies his pioneering work in the field of pediatric orthopedics, specifically focused on congenital limb anomalies and pediatric foot disorders. Guided by a profound commitment to improving the lives of young patients, he has become a vanguard in the development of innovative surgical techniques and treatments that correct congenital limb differences, enabling children to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives. His groundbreaking efforts have not only transformed individual lives but have also set new benchmarks in pediatric orthopedics worldwide.

Dr. Dobbs’ research interests span a wide spectrum of orthopedic domains. From investigating the intricate mechanisms behind skeletal deformities to exploring novel approaches for early diagnosis and intervention, his scholarly pursuits have had far-reaching implications for both clinical practice and scientific understanding. His multidisciplinary approach, drawing from genetics, biomechanics, and developmental biology, has led to paradigm shifts in how we perceive, diagnose, and treat a diverse array of orthopedic conditions.

Among his remarkable successes, one standout achievement is his innovative contributions to the Ponseti method for treating clubfoot deformity in infants. Dr. Dobbs’ extensive work in refining this non-surgical technique has revolutionized the approach to clubfoot treatment, offering a less invasive and more effective solution that has transformed the lives of countless children and families. His commitment to global outreach and education has also played a pivotal role in disseminating this life-changing methodology to medical professionals across the world.
