Dupuytren’s Contracture

Dupuytren’s contracture occurs when the fibrous tissue that lies underneath of your skin in the fingers and palm ends up thickening. Even though the condition might be painless, the tightening and thickening of the tissue can end up causing your fingers to curl and distort which can cause discomfort or make certain tasks difficult. If you are in need of correction of Depuytren’s contracture, you can schedule your surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center with I Need A Surgery.

How do I know if I need dupuytren’s contracture?

The symptoms of the condition tend to come on slowly. You might have any of the following symptoms:

  • One or more lumps end up forming in your palm. Over the course of time, they aren’t as tender as when they were in the beginning.
  • Nodules can end up contracting and thickening, thus forming thick bands of tissue underneath your skin.
  • You could end up with some of your fingers curling to the palm of your hand. Even though the little finger and ring finger are those that are affected most often, any of your other fingers can be affected as well. Before you know it, the bend is so significant that it becomes hard to even get your finger to straighten out. Trying to grab larger objects or simply put your hand inside of your pocket becomes a chore.

How is the dupuytren’s contracture procedure performed?

Surgery involves the division or removal of the thick bands of tissue to help restore movement in the finger. At times, the wound is left open and given the time it needs to slowly heal. Depending on the situation, a skin graft might be required.

What is recovery like after dupuytren’s contracture?

After surgery, you can expect to deal with a certain amount of soreness and swelling. Keep your hand elevated above your heart level. Move your fingers gently to help relieve swelling, pain and stiffness. Physical therapy is beneficial in the recovery process. Specific exercises will help you to move your fingers and regain strength.

How much does dupuytren’s contracture cost?
