Timely management strategies and appropriate medical evaluation and treatment for any injury is the key to decreasing long-term effects.

The most frequently injured part of a child's body are the hands. The most common pediatric hand injuries are finger injuries and fractures, tendon injuries, and burns.

Treatment should be individualized to the patient's skeletal maturity, injury type, and severity. Pediatric hand specialists can treat numerous hand problems, such as traumatic injuries, complex injuries involving tendons and nerves, congenital abnormalities, and infections. It is important to follow-up with the proper specialists for any pediatric hand fracture.
