Polydactyly is a deformity in which the hand has one or more extra fingers in any of three places of the hand:
African-American children are more likely to have an extra little finger, while Asians and Caucasians are more likely to have an extra thumb.
Your child’s doctor will know by sight that your baby’s hand has an extra digit. The doctor will refer you to a hand specialist, who will guide you to a more detailed diagnosis and treatment plan.
The skilled experts in the Boston Children's Hospital Hand and Orthopedic Upper Extremity Program and the Hand and Microsurgery Reconstructive Program have treated thousands of babies and children with hand problems, ranging from the simple to the highly complex. So we can provide your child with expert diagnosis, treatment and care — as well as the benefits of some of the most advanced clinical and scientific research in the world.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
