Congenital Limb Defects

Some of the defects can be treated conservatively (occupational therapy, physiotherapy, assistive devices) and sometimes there is a need for orthothics/prosthetics. There are also various surgical options for numerous cases. It is necessary to consider which treatment is suitable for the patient and the defect.

The treatment is customized to the patient according to his/her age, type of defect, and whether there are additional injuries/problems that affect functional capabilities.

It is important to start discussing the therapeutic options as early as possible.
