Congenital deformities are abnormalities of the fingers, hand, wrist, or arm that are present at birth. Common congenital deformities include a small additional digit or finger (polydactyly), webbed or fused fingers (syndactyly) and absence of a finger, thumb or part of the extremity (aplasia).
Congenital deformities can usually be corrected with surgery. The goal of surgery is to improve function, provide stability, and restore aesthetic appearance to the affected area. Hand therapy is an integral part of the treatment process and is often required before and after surgery. The doctors at Central Jersey Hand Surgery are experts in the treatment of congenital abnormalities.
