A New Thumb: Early Pollicization Outcome

Pollicization is one of my favorite surgeries for kids born with hand differences.  This child is several months out from the pollicization procedure.  He is using the new thumb as demonstrated in this video and the family (and the surgeon:)) are all very pleased with the appearance of the hand and thumb.  While kids begin use of the new thumb at different time intervals after surgery, this child has incorporated the pollicization rapidly and with great function!
