The Hand Surgery team is part of the nationally-ranked Orthopedics Department at Children’s Mercy. Our surgeons are uniquely trained to care for children with a wide variety of hand, wrist and upper extremity conditions. Our team, led by Dr. Christine Cheng and Dr. Micah Sinclair, includes surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists, and other specialists who focus exclusively on working with children and teens every day.
Our specialized pediatric focus means our surgeons can offer evaluation and treatment for hand and arm conditions that are present at birth or develop later on, including cerebral palsy, brachial plexopathy, tendonitis and traumatic injury.
The highest level of hand care
We are one of only a few hospitals in the nation to have two full-time, board-certified hand surgeons on our team, and one of only ten locations in the nation to be verified as a Level One Children’s Surgery Center by the American College of Surgeons.
Our surgeons also collaborate with research and hand study specialists across the country and around the world, so you can get the advanced care you need in one place.
Coordinated, convenient hand care for your child
At Children’s Mercy, everything we do is centered around kids. In addition to expert medical care, we also provide support for your child and family through our Child Life specialists, social workers and specially-trained pediatric anesthesiologists. Our radiologists use gentle imaging techniques to get the best quality of images with the smallest possible amount of radiation to protect your child.
