There are four types of radial deficiencies. Type I to IV . Depending
on the amount of radius present determines the type . We would
need to see if your niece has any radius present or none at all.
I would recomend that you look at the web page of the Temple University
Department of Orthopaedics in Philadelphia. (www.pond.com/%7Eortho/welcome.html).
This is where I performed my residency and I would like for you
to get in touch with Scott H. Kozin,M.D. . You can find him under
the Hand surgery section on this home page. Temple University's
department of orthopaedics is associated with the Shriner's Hospital
for Crippled Children in Philadelphia. They perform surgery for
free to anybody that requires an orthopaedic procedure. They can
pay for the air fare and all expenses needed to bring your niece
to the United States!!!! Therefore, please get in touch with Dr.
Kozin and tell him that Ireferred you to him. To answer your question,
there are procedures to centralize the existing wrist over the
ulna with good or satisfactory result sin the 80% range. If you
have any questions, please feel free to contact me again. Sincerely,
