Congenital Hand Differences
The hand is considered to be one of the great master pieces of Nature. Its structure is so much linked to function and is controlled by the human brain. Sometimes, Nature does experiment and some children are born with differences in structure of the hand. The variations of hand and upper limb differences are almost endless. It also causes endless questions in the minds of the parents about the future prospects of the child. The Hand Surgery Department of Ganga Hospital is very keen to address this issue.
In the management of these children, we share the goal of the parents – that is to provide the child as functional a hand as possible with good aesthetic outcome.
We are able to provide a comprehensive care in addressing common problems like joined finger, extra fingers to complex issues like Symbrachydactyly and Radial Club Hand. The Unit is also capable of providing microsurgery solutions for congenital hand differences.
