in Winter Park, Florida |
Both hands have been riddled with Dupuytren over 35 years. I had surgical operations back then which were painful & required 6 months of rehab. Last year Al preformed Needle Fasciotony on my right hand fingers & Opended the Web with great success & minimual pain. Recently I opted for xiaflex injection & manipulation for finger on my right hand. Again great success. Al is a master surgeon, friend & hero with a great support team. I highly recommend Alan Christensen! Bob Lasek

I have used Dr. Christensen for multiple issues and totally rely on his knowledge and treatment options. He and the staff at Orlando Orthopedics are very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. They have always been able to get me an appointment right away, and have always responded to my calls and questions.
