Correcting Congenital Extremity Deformities: Pediatric Surgery in San Ramon

Although uncommon, these deformities can range from simple fusion abnormalities (syndactyly or fused fingers) to true congenital deformities of a hand, forearm, shoulder, and chest wall (Poland’s Syndrome).

The most important aspect of treating these deformities is establishing a complete and accurate diagnosis. Differentiating between congenital genetic deformities and developmental deformities is paramount.

After a diagnosis is established and the extent of the deformity is completely ascertained, a detailed plan is developed to establish function, form, and symmetry while always appreciating the possible need for further corrective surgery as growth and development proceeds during childhood and beyond.
