Various types of hand abnormalities can be surgically repaired, including:
Polydactyly: When a baby is born with more than five fingers, the extra fingers (which typically are not functional) can be surgically removed. This procedure must be performed carefully so that the final result appears to be a normal hand.
Syndactyly: When the fingers of a baby are fused together or appear webbed, this condition can be surgically repaired. The procedure may vary, based upon whether the bone structure Is fused or merely the tissue.
Symbrachydactyly: If a child has small or missing fingers, a surgery performed early in the child’s life may improve both function and appearance of the hand. These are complex, delicate surgeries requiring high level surgical skills to perform.
Complex hand surgeries are typically performed under regional or general anesthesia, and may be outpatient surgery or may require a night’s stay in a hospital, particularly for children. A cast may be needed to keep the hand stable during healing. Our surgeon will closely monitor your recovery with follow-up visits. Once the cast is removed, specialized exercises will be needed to regain strength and flexibility.
For adults, you may need to take several weeks off work to recover. As each hand injury or condition is unique, a private consultation with our hand surgeon will allow you to fully understand the surgical procedure needed and the predicted results and recovery time.
