Depends : [profile indicates possible rheumatoid deformity of hands]. If you have this condition a cure may not be available. But our hand and plastic surgeons do an amazing job in getting the hands looking as close to normal as possible; not just cosmetics, but actual gain in function. Need to be on better meds than Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) 200 & mtx 7.5 to slow down further damage.
