How syndactyly is corrected?

Syndactyly, the birth defect where some of the fingers of the hand or foot are fused, depending on the severity, can best be corrected through a surgical procedure.

The objective of the surgery is to separate the fused fingers so they function independently. A baby with syndactyly may undergo surgery to correct the defect generally around eighteen months. Surgeons cover the separated fingers by using the finger’s skin or skin from the abdomen. However, babies with severe cases of syndactyly may need to undergo additional surgical procedures at a much earlier age to correct the defect, especially if the bones are involved.

Correcting syndactyly birth defect is often expensive. However, if your baby’s syndactyly is likely the result of fetal exposure to Depakote, the lawyers of Williams Hart may be able to help you secure the funds you need for treatment. Call us today at 800-761-3187 to learn more about your options.
