Pediatric Hand Surgery

Pediatric Hand SurgeryHand surgery can rebuild use and feeling in the hand as well as correct differences that have been present since birth (congenital differences). Our pediatric hand surgeons have special training to work with children and their developing hand structures. Since there are many different types of hand surgery, depending on the area of the hand that needs repairs, talking to a specialist will help you understand the best choices for your child.

A specialist may use different tests to examine the structure of the hand, including an ultrasound, x-ray, magnetic resonance imaging scan (MRI) or an electromyogram (or EMG, which measures electrical activity in a group of muscles). They will ask you and your child about the child’s medical history, and, if their hand was injured, how. They will even ask you whether your child is left or right handed. All of these examinations and questions will help them decide what surgery or treatment they think is right for your child.
