Dupuytrens_Fig3.jpg

A Dupuytren’s contracture is a hereditary thickening of the fibrous tissue called fascia that lies just below the skin in your palm. This condition may vary from small lumps or bands to very thick cords which may eventually pull the fingers into the palm, most commonly the ring and little fingers. In years past, this could only be treated with surgery, but there is now an injectable medication available which dissolves the cords and corrects the deformity. This can be done very easily in the office.
