Congenital deformities are those that a child is born with that can affect the childs growth and function. Common defects include fingers which are fused together (syndactyly), short digits (brachydactyly), extra digits (polydactyly), missing digits, and deformed digits.
Surgeries are aimed at providing normal range of motion and function, while improving appearance. In most cases significant improvement in form and function is possible.
If you are suffering from a hand deformity, congenital hand surgery may be right for you.
