What is Dupuytren’s Disease?

Dupuytren’s is a disease characterized by the abnormal thickening of the tissue just beneath the skin in the palm and sometimes extending into the fingers. Occasionally, the affliction creates firm pits, nodules or cords that cause the fingers of the hand to bend inward, creating a condition known as Dupuytren’s contracture. Although not typically painful, this disease can make it difficult to perform activities such as washing your hands, wearing gloves or shaking hands with someone.

How is Dupuytren’s Disease Treated?

Like many hand conditions, Dupuytren’s disease occurs in various levels of severity. Some of our Gulf Coast area clients require simple observation if their symptoms are minor. For more major cases, Dr. Miller may recommend the following:

  • Surgery: In some cases, you may be a candidate for Dupuytren’s surgery, which removes any tissue damaged by the disease. This may require skin grafts if the procedure resulted in deficient skin, leaving open areas.  This is usually done as an outpatient procedure.

When you work with Dr. Miller, you can be assured that he will discuss all of your options thoroughly. Our gulf Coast area patients appreciate his respectful ways and are comforted by his knowledge and compassion.
