Many advances in hand surgery have been made in recent years to correct imperfections caused by congenital defects or injury. At Hasbro Children’s Hospital we treat congenital hand disorders that interfere with proper hand growth in children, as well as problems resulting from trauma, injury or neurological conditions. We also treat conditions such as nerve injuries, bone injuries, soft tissue deficiency, growth disorders and arthritis.

Our hand surgeons work closely with other surgeons and physical and occupational therapists to achieve an optimal result.
