Washington University Orthopedics has a nearly 50-year history of national leadership in the care of children with birth differences and injuries of the upper extremity. Before his retirement, Dr. Paul Manske was a mentor to Dr. Charles Goldfarb and Dr. Lindley Wall, who both now proudly care for children with any issue of the upper extremity and lead a team of specialists. 

We care for birth differences (such as extra fingers or missing fingers/bones), trauma to the upper extremity (like broken bones or soft tissue injuries), and other conditions that affect the arms and hands.
