Two month ago, we had a wonderful girl. But she was born with deformed toes in one foot?

Hi!

for little less than two month ago, we got a wonderful girl! But she was born with deformed toes in one foot.

her both foots are healthy, except for the toes which looks clearly deformed, and as parents we are worried about her future, and don’t know what steps to take!

we want to ask as a specialist, what should we do? appoint her to operation, or wait until she became older??

with regards (…)

This is called static Macrodactyly
First u need and x ray which then will determine the next step which can range from modified shoe to surgical procedure ( in early age but not in infants )
From the picture you uploaded you may need a Shortening Procedures

Good Luck

Hi and thanks for posting your question to question doctor
In her age there will almost be no surgery until 7-8 years old but a mefuxsl shoe and physiotherapy can be the treatment of choice at this time.

hi
she is too young to get surgical correction done.
At present,get her toes Xray done to see for the underlying bones.
physiotherapy and deformity corrective massage can be helpful at this age.
thanks

HI
THIS IS A CONGENITAL DEFORMITY AND NEEDS SURGICAL REPAIR AT A LATER STAGE.
AGE SHOULD BE ATLEAST 2 YEARS TO TOLERATE ANESTHESIA.
CONSULT A PAEDIATRIC SURGEON.

hello there
the deformity doesn’t seem to be much severe.
many such deformities get corrected by simple massage manouvers daily after breast feeding.
only after 1 year you can think of surgical correction.
