Default New FDA approved Nonsurgical Treatment available for Dupuytren's contracture

After many years of investigation of of feasibility, safety and efficacy---a bacterial enzyme injection which can dissolve the duputren's cord (clostridial collagenase) is now available. For more informtion visit

This new treatment option is available for appropriate candidates at Tomaino Orthopaedic Care. It involves an injection on day 1 followed the next day by a gentle manipulation. Formal therapy is not required, but a splint is recommended at night for several months to keep the fingers in a straightened position.
