Hand-Foot Syndrome

Treatment for Chemotherapy-Affected Feet-Hand-Foot Syndrome

Dr. Johanna Youner has developed a protocol of treatments to help you through the chemotherapy side effect of Palmar Plantar Erythrodysethesia (Hand-Foot Syndrome).

Working with Dr Mario LaCouture of Sloane Kettering Dermatology Clinic as well as your personal dermatologists and oncologists, we will work together to manage the side effects of chemotherapy.  Dr. Youner and Dr. Halbfass will help you to continue your regular activities despite undergoing chemotherapy.

Combining gentle debridement, topical anesthetic, padding, and proper shoegear, we can help a person undergoing chemotherapy return to their activities of daily living with less pain and far more function.
