The Denis Browne bar, also known as the Denis Browne splint or foot abduction orthosis, is a medical device used in the treatment of club foot. The device is named after Sir Denis Browne (1892-1967), an Australian-born surgeon at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London who was considered the father of pediatric surgery in the United Kingdom.[1] Browne first described the device in 1934.[2] The bar may be used as part of the Ponseti method, a series of nonsurgical techniques to address club foot.
