Dupuytren’s Contracture Surgery

Regain Full Use of Your Hands

Dupuytren’s Contracture is a hand defect that occurs when scar tissue spontaneously begins to form along the palm and bottom of the finger. These “knots under the skin” can progress to form a cord that pulls the finger down into a contracted position. Not only does this make normal use of the effected finger difficult, but this can also lead to repeated infections.

Improve Your Function and Movement

Nonoperative management of the Dupuytrens contracture is appropriate of the defect doesn’t impact digit usage and the patient can perform their usual activities of daily living. However, if surgery is required, removal of all “scar” tissue to allow full digital range of motion is most appropriate.

Depending on the severity of your condition, this procedure may take more time and precision, as well as a longer recovery period and physical therapy.

This surgery will improve the function and movements of your fingers.
