The treatment of Duane-radial ray syndrome is symptomatic and supportive. Severe strabismus associated with Duane syndrome may require eye surgery. Severe malformations of the hands and forearms may require surgery (i.e. surgery to correct aplasia of the thumb by constructing a functional thumb (pollicization). Those with heart defects may also require corrective surgery. Hearing aids may be needed for those with hearing deficits. Growth hormone therapy may be considered for those with short stature. Since kidney issues may develop, renal monitoring should also be considered.
