Dupuytren’s contracture is a condition of the underlying tissue on the palm side of the hand and skin. Heavy, scar-like tissue builds beneath the skin of the palm and may go up to the fingers, pulling them toward the palm and limiting movement. The disorder generally crops up in mid-life and does not have any established reason.
During recent years, the treatment of Dupuytren’s Contracture has gone through lot of transformations. At present, the treatment choices include injectable enzyme in order to break the cords, breaking the cords surgically with the help of small incisions as well as the open treatment that calls for an incision in the palm and at times goes into the fingers.
Dr Haque will help you decide upon the best course of treatment during your first visit. The outcome of the surgery will depend on the level of the disease. Generally, you can expect noteworthy improvement in function, mainly after physical therapy and a small unnoticeable mark.
