Dr. Salem Samra was recently published in the October 2016 edition of the Journal of Hand Surgery (Asian-Pacific Volume). The study involves children born with extra fingers (polydactyly) and how best to treat them. Dr. Samra designed the study and is the first author on the paper.

“Having a child born with this deformity can be a very traumatic experience for parents and there has not been a clear consensus among hand surgeons or pediatricians on the best treatment approach,” said Dr. Samra. “This study helps both parents and doctors better understand the treatment options available to correct the deformity and select a procedure that’s best for the affected child.”
