Xiaflex is a new, non-surgical treatment for patients that suffer from Dupuytren's disease, which is a relatively common disorder that can cause contractures of the palm and fingers.
Xiaflex is an injectable medication made up of proteins and enzymes designed to break down the cord that develops with Dupuytren's disease. The FDA approved Xiaflex in 2010, providing a safe, non-operative option for patients. In the past, patients either had to live with their contracted fingers or undergo extensive hand surgery.
We at Southern Oregon Orthopedics strive to keep up with the latest advances in medicine in order to provide the best possible care and treatment for our patients. Call to make an appointment with Dr. Sternenberg, he would be happy to discuss Xiaflex with you and determine if you are a candidate for this exciting new treatment option.
