Xiaflex (Collagenase) Injections
Dr. Master has received extensive training in the use of Xiaflex (Collagenase) to treat Dupuytren’s diseas (a contracture of the fingers). Patient’s benefit from this technique greatly because it allows for the treatment of their disease with an injection rather than surgery. The injected medication acts like a chemical knife which releases the contracted tissue. During treatment, patient’s are typically able to use their hand normally without restrictions.
Gradual finger contracture correction
Dr. Master has also received extensive training in the use of the Digit Widget for gradual correction of Dupuytren’s disease. This technique utilizes a small device which gradually straightens the finger over several weeks. The benefit of this technique to patient’s is that it may allow them to avoid a formal, open surgical procedure to correct their Dupuytren’s disease.
