Before and after webbed finger repair

Before and after webbed finger repair

Overview

The results of webbed finger repair are dependent on the degree of fusion of the fingers. When joined fingers share a single fingernail, the creation of two normal-looking nails is rarely possible. One nail will look more normal than the other. Some children require a second surgery, depending on the complexity of the syndactyly.
