Radial Club Hand: A Patient’s Story

Meet Grant, who was born with short arms and four fingers on each hand. He was missing the radius bone in both arms, a condition known as radial club hand. His mother was told there was nothing that could be done. Fortunately, his family brought him to an expert in treating this condition, pediatric orthopedic surgeon Dr. Shawn Standard at the International Center for Limb Lengthening at the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics. Grant is now happy and well on his way to a life his family once thought would never be possible.
