Macrodactyly is marked by the presence of an enlarged finger or toe on a newborn. Sometimes this condition coexists with syndactyly, in which fingers or toes are fused.
What Causes Macrodactyly?
Macrodactyly is a genetic disorder and tends to run in families.
Treatment of Macrodactyly
Macrodactyly treatment depends on the extent of the condition. Surgery can often improve the appearance and function of the affected limb. The highly trained team at the Nicklaus Children's Hospital Hand and Extremity Program can support families in identifying the best treatment options.
Dr. Chad Perlyn, plastic surgeon and co-director of the operating room, explains why the surgical procedures and environment at Miami Children's Hospital are so special.
