When I lived in Illinois, I was diagnosed with Dupuytren's contracture on my left hand pinkie. It developed slowly over several years. When it finally reached an inconvenient stage, I reviewed options with my doctor. Xiaflex injections were recommended over surgery. The injection process was very painful and did not completely straighten my pinkie but it was better. Unfortunately the process did not eliminate the contracture and it returned within two years time. I had moved to Wisconsin i
Thank you Gene for your gracious review. We greatly appreciate your kind words and for sharing your story.

Dr. Olvey performed surgery on my scaphoid, requiring a screw and bone graph. The bone had deteriorated enough that there was a high risk for failure - which would require the bone to be removed. Most people with this surgery rarely have a 100% recovery, but I can say that I am 100%, and even lift heavy weights. There was a self-inflected complication post surgery, and scheduling an emergency appointment was easy and timely. He was great to work with, very patient, friendly, and caring.
