Treatment for Clubbed Thumb

I have a Clubbed Thumb, also known as Brachydactyly type D or BDD. It is only visible on my left thumb and has been there since birth . I wanted to know what I would need to do to get it looked at and what options there are to make the thumb more normal looking .... I have been looking on the net and found that surgery can correct this. My reason for this is I have been very conscious of my thumb for many years and I want rid of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Jay

Hi Jay,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
You need to consult a good Plastic Surgeon and take his opinion. Also, you have to undergo a battery of investigations before planning for reconstructive surgery.
Good Luck
