At Boston Children’s Hospital, we understand that the first step to treating your child’s syndactyly is obtaining an accurate, timely and thorough diagnosis.

Syndactyly may be seen by ultrasound prenatally, and is apparent at birth. Your doctor will use x-rays to assess the underlying structure of your baby’s fingers and determine a course of treatment. If the syndactyly is associated with a genetic syndrome, doctors will evaluate the baby’s entire upper extremity, chest feet and head/face to detect other abnormalities.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
