Dupuytrens Fasciectomy

Dupuytrens Fasciectomy at Fulwood Hall Hospital

What is Dupuytren’s disease?

Dupuytren's disease is a hand deformity that develops over years. It causes the fibrous layer of connective tissue that lies just underneath the skin in your palm and fingers, called fascia, to thicken and tighten.

As the fascia develop into thick cords and contract over time, your fingers can be pulled in towards your palm, known as a Dupuytren's contracture, making it difficult to straighten the affected digits. 
To a lay person, Dupuytren's disease is sometimes confused with trigger finger, a condition that can also result in bent fingers, but is an entirely different process and as such requires a different surgery, called trigger finger surgery.
