If your child has a congenital hand disorder such as syndactyly (joined fingers), radial longitudinal deficiency, osteochondral defects or extra digits, you are not alone. Charles Goldfarb, MD, at Washington University Orthopedics in St. Louis is here to help. Dr. Goldfarb gets to know each family to find out what is important to the family and the child. Then, he devises the most appropriate treatment protocol. These conditions are not common, and there are few surgeons who deal with these conditions on a regular basis. Dr. Goldfarb takes pride in working with each family to offer the best treatment possible.
Dr .Goldfarb sees patients at St. Louis Children's Hospital, the Center for Advanced Medicine at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, the Orthopedic Center in Chesterfield and Shriners Hospital for Children.
