Hand Defects

Polydactyly/Accessory Digits

Polydactyly refers to the presence of an additional digit (finger or toe).


Syndactyly is the fusion of digits (fingers or toes).  Syndactyly is the most common congenital malformation of the limbs, and can range from the fusion of soft tissue only, to the fusion of soft tissue (skin) and bones.

Amniotic Band Sequence

This condition is due to a partial rupture of the amniotic sac during pregnancy.  Amnions/fibrous tissue fibers can adhere to the fetus, causing constriction and reduction of blood flow.  Amniotic bands can lead to digit anomalies, limb anomalies, and in some cases facial differences.

Hand Injuries


Hand burns may be the result of an injury, and the resulting scar may need additional revisions.

Scar deformities

Hand scar deformities may result from a previous injury or accident which did not heal well after medical intervention.  Scar revision surgery may assist with improving the resulting scar.


Hand fractures are the most common fracture of the body.  Hand fractures may occur in;  wrist bones (carpal), hand bones (metacarpals) and/or fingers (phalanges).  Early identification and treatment of these injuries is crucial for improving function once the injury has healed.
