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.
The symptoms of the condition tend to come on slowly. You might have any of the following symptoms:
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.
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.
I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $3,290, versus having to pay $32,900 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
