Congenital Hand Differences

Reported in as many as one in twenty children at birth, congenital hand differences can be major or minor. Some of the most common congenital differences include extra fingers (polydactyly), webbed fingers (syndactyly), or digits of decreased size (hypoplasia). Fargo plastic surgeon Dr. Nicholas Adams has extensive training and experience in the treatment of congenital hand differences. To schedule your personal consultation, please call the Center for Plastic Surgery at 701-412-2400. Many congenital differences are best treated early to help the child develop normal use of their hands.
