Non-surgical innovation for Dupuytren's contracture
Dupuytren's contracture is a thickening and tightening of the normally elastic tissue beneath the skin of the palm and fingers. Strands of fibers, like cords, run from the palm upward into the fingers. In Dupuytren's contracture, these cords tighten, or contract, bending the fingers out of position and preventing them from straightening.
By injecting an enzyme into the hand to soften and break down the corded tissue, our orthopedic hand experts are successfully restoring flexibility and function—and eliminating the need for more invasive surgical procedures.
