"QUTENZA is a 30-minute, non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment.
When applied in-office by a healthcare provider, it can provide lasting relief from diabetic nerve pain of the feet."
You may ask... what is Qutenza?
"QUTENZA: It's more than a patch
QUTENZA is a different kind of treatment for diabetic nerve pain of the feet. It’s an FDA-approved, non-surgical, prescription-strength topical system applied by your physician in-office. QUTENZA can be used alone or in combination with other treatments.
While it may look like a patch, QUTENZA is a topical system. It uses unique patented technology, designed to treat nerve pain at the source of pain by delivering medication deeper into the skin."
We are excited to share this new treatment option in our office with our patients.
