I wanted know will my baby be going through casts for setting his feet or he will be given the special shoes for correcting his feet.

You should have a consultation with an orthopedic specialist who will decide the best treatment for your baby which could include casts and braces to be sure the correction is permanent. Sometimes surgery is performed but it all depends on your doctor and child.
The good news is that it is correctable.
