"Dr. Mentzer treated me for palmar fascial fibromatosis, also known as Dupuytren's contracture. This involved injecting a solution into my right hand at the base of the palm and the next day manipulating the cord and knot that had formed over a number of years, until the knot "broke." I was a little nervous, but Dr. Mentzer's treatment was gentle and reassuring, and the procedure was no more painful than receiving a shot. Dr. Mentzer's nurse, Jackie, clearly explained the type of therapy I would need to restore full range of motion, and provided a list of providers when she learned the AFOC therapy department wasn't in my insurance network. I'm thrilled to have full use of my hand again. You could say that Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic "held my hand" every step of the way!" - Susan B.
