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.
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.
I especially appreciate the friendly, respectful reception by the staff and the on-time care and attention to small (and big) problems provided by Dr. Stevens.
Very clean and Friendly office. Great doctors!
My family loves Dr Stevens we have been his patients for many years. He treats us like family. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.
Very friendly doctor and office staff, they go out of their way to help schedule an appointment with you.
The entire staff is wonderful, very accommodating when scheduling an appointment and Dr. Stevens is very attentive listening to all concerns. Highly recommended.
Dr. Stevens is a brilliant podiatrist! I always know that my feet are well taken care of because Dr. Stevens is highly knowledgeable. He frequently attends seminars to learn about the latest procedures and medicines. He is wise, kind, and he has a great sense of humor as well. I highly recommend him!
Very nice and polite!!! They make sure that you’re treated the right way.
