Case 1

This was a case of a little girl born with an extra thumb. Her mom thought it was bad luck and asked me to remove it as soon as it was safe to do so. At 3 weeks, I x-ray’d her hand to make sure I wouldn’t injure the blood supply to the dominant thumb while removing the extra one. Here she is with her extra thumb removed. Note : my thumb is almost as big as her entire hand!
