The vast majority of patients can be treated non-surgically with good correction of their fingers via nerve blocks/injection. The bands are then broken a week later leading to a much faster recovery and often better outcomes. We are just waiting for insurers to approve funding but in the meantime, those patients who are insured will find it cheaper than the surgery.
Advantages of Xiaflex include: a rapid recovery of 1-2 weeks, compares to 4-8 weeks with surgery, and a lower cost of treatment.
This injection should only be administered by a hand surgeon who fully understands the implications of treatment.
