Treating Dupuytren's disease in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Dupuytren’s disease or contracture is a condition that causes a thickening of the fascia on the palm of the hand.

The fascia or connective tissue located just beneath the skin often contracts with thickening and causes one or more of the fingers to curl forward or flex towards the palm. This condition is more common in men than in women and the cause is not known.

Symptoms

First symptoms are painless and usually a noticeable nodule will appear under the skin on the palm of the hand, most commonly in line with the ring and little fingers. As the disease progresses the fingers begin to curl and may or may not be able to fully straighten.

Treatment

There is no cure or treatment to prevent Dupuytren’s disease or its progression, but there are treatments used to prevent further contractures of the fingers or release the contracture through a surgical procedure.
