Symbrachydactyly is a condition where some of a child’s fingers are short or missing.


The cause of symbrachydactyly is unknown.


Symbrachydactyly is visible at birth and can also be discovered prenatally with an ultrasound. Your doctor will perform X-rays to determine the extent of the condition.

Non-Surgical Treatment

Treatment of symbrachydactyly varies from child to child. In some cases, no surgery or only minor skin and soft-tissue corrections are needed.

Surgical Treatment

Most of the time, surgery is performed when a child is between 6 and 18 months old. Sometimes, additional surgeries are needed to ensure the long-term health of a child.
