Congenital Hand Deformities

Congenital hand deformities refer to structural abnormalities present at birth, affecting the form and function of the hands. These conditions can vary widely and may involve the fingers, palms, or wrists. While each case is unique, our specialized team is dedicated to providing comprehensive care and personalized treatment options for individuals with congenital hand deformities.

Types of Congenital Hand Deformities:

Congenital hand deformities can manifest in different ways, including:

  • Polydactyly:

    Extra fingers or toes are present, a condition where a child is born with more than the usual number of digits.

  • Syndactyly:

    Fingers or toes are fused together, and there is an absence of normal separation.

Diagnosis and Treatment:

Accurate diagnosis and early intervention are crucial for managing congenital hand deformities. Our approach involves:

  • Medical Evaluation:

    A thorough examination to assess the specific nature of the deformity and its impact on function.

  • Imaging Studies:

    X-rays or other imaging techniques to visualize the internal structures and plan appropriate treatment.

  • Surgical Interventions:

    Individualized surgical procedures to correct the deformity and enhance hand function.

Treatment Options:

The treatment for congenital hand deformities may include:

  • Surgical Correction:

    Surgical procedures to correct the deformity, reconstruct affected structures, and improve overall hand function.

  • Physical Therapy:

    Post-surgery rehabilitation involving exercises and therapies to improve strength, flexibility, and coordination.

  • Occupational Therapy:

    Techniques to enhance fine motor skills, adaptive strategies, and activities of daily living.
