Hand surgery

Recommended Posts

Hi Kakykaky,


Welcome to these forums!


I have no personal experience of hand surgery to help with the effects of sclerodactyly; however, I've included a link to our medical page on Sclerodactyly Treatments: Surgery, which I hope you'll find helpful and interesting.


There are clinical trials being done for an experimental treatment which consists of ADRC Injections (Adipose-derived Stem and Regenerative Cells) by Cytori Therapeutics for Systemic Scleroderma Hand Involvement, which does seem to be obtaining good results for sclerodactyly, so that might be worth investigating, as well as the surgical option.


Kind regards,

Jo Frowde
