Maffucci’s syndrome is a very rare congenital disease, wherein multiple enchondromas develop on the bones, along with hemangiomas, or soft tissue tumors that involve entangled, abnormal blood vessels. The benign, non-cancerous cartilage growths form in the cartilage at the end of bones, where bone growth occurs. They most frequently develop in the hands and feet, although they can form anywhere in the body, and can result in severe bone deformities, fractures, underdeveloped muscles, shortened limbs, and shorter stature. Enchondromas halt formation when growing stops. The growths can become malignant, or cancerous. Surgical treatment is necessary if the growths damage bone tissue, at which point they should be removed.

Still want more feedback on numbness, but understand waiting. Ingrown nail procedure was the 5th I’ve had, and the first that was 100% pain free. Doctor was thorough, answered all my questions politely, and gave me some confidence this would all go away on its own. Glad I chose this place.
Wonderful care. Great staff, helpful and efficient. Dr. Stevens got me healed up and back to work.
No matter what day or time of my appointment, I find the entire staff, pleasant, cordial and helpful — also, there are no long waits for appointments — usually quite prompt from the time of the appointment to the time I am brought to the examining room.
I had wonderful care by Dr. Stevens. He took the time to listen to what I said & validated my concerns. Never kept me waiting and has flexible office hours. I am extremely pleased with my treatment.
Very friendly doctor and office staff, they go out of their way to help schedule an appointment with you.
