How is Poland’s syndrome corrected?
The syndrome itself cannot be corrected, and any issues with hand function should be managed during childhood with an Occupational Therapist and/ or hand surgeon. Dr O’Mahony does not practice hand surgery.
In puberty when the failure of breast development is noted Dr O’Mahony can undertake breast reconstruction using a combination of breast implants and transfer of a muscle from the back to create a more. Normal chest and breast contour. Surgery maybe undertaken in stages and may need to be revised at maturity to optimise final symmetry of the two breasts.
If you would like to discuss your breast asymmetry and what options you may have for correction with Dr O’Mahony contact her office to make an appointment.
