Congenital Hand and Foot Surgery

Congenital deformities of the hand and foot are physical abnormalities present at birth that can significantly affect a child’s hand and foot function and appearance. Deformities may occur as a result of abnormal development, birth injuries or genetic factors, and can involve fingers or toes that are fused together, an underdeveloped hand or foot, extra fingers or toes, and other abnormalities. Surgery for these conditions depends on the type and severity of the deformity, but may include tendon transfers, skin grafts, limb manipulation, external appliances or prosthetic devices to restore normal function and appearance to the hand or foot.
