Congenital disorders

Treatment of children born with hand disorders:

Syndactyly- a  condition where at least two if not more fingers are "attached" to one another by skin and there is no separation between the fingers.

Polydactyly- a condition in which a child is born with more than five fingers; these may be small pendulous attachments or a fully developed extra finger.

Triphalangeal Thumb- a condition in which a child is born with three small bones (phalanges) instead of two bones of the thumb, which would lead to a longer and possibly less functional thumb.

Congenital Trigger Thumb-

Amniotic Disruption Sequence- a condition in which a child is born with tight rings of skin/scarring around a finger or amputated fingers.

Congenital Absence of the Thumb- a condition in which a child is born without a thumb.

Thumb Duplication- a condition in which a child is born with two thumbs.
