Dupuytren’s Contracture Surgery

Dupuytren’s contracture, or palmar fibromatosis, is a condition that affects the palm of the hand. It causes the tissue under the hand’s skin, called the palmar fascia, to thicken and knot together, causing one or more fingers to be gradually pulled into a flexed position. Dupuytren’s contracture is most commonly seen in males over age 50 and most commonly affects the ring finger and small finger. It can make shaking hands, writing, and other everyday manual activities difficult. At Surgical Solutions Network, our board-certified surgeons correct this condition by offering private Dupuytren’s contracture surgery in Canada.

Treatments for Dupuytren’s Contracture of the Hand

Our board-certified physicians typically perform Dupuytren’s contracture surgery through incisions in the palm to correct genetic, progressive, permanent flexion of the fingers. In some cases, they can correct the problem with minimally invasive treatments, such as needle release (aponeurotomy).

What Is the Goal of Dupuytren’s Contracture Surgery?

The surgery involves the release or removal of thick bands and/or nodules on the palmar surface of the fingers and hand in order to correct:

  • Inability to straighten fingers
  • Painful lumps or thickenings on the palm

Dupuytren’s contracture surgery can restore normal position and full mobility to the fingers in most patients.

What Happens During Dupuytren’s Contracture Surgery?

Dupuytren’s contracture surgery is performed using local or general anaesthesia, depending on the patient. The surgeon makes an incision in the palm of the hand and removes the tissue causing the fingers to bend.

How Long Is Recovery After Dupuytren’s Contracture Surgery?

Full functional recovery from palmar fasciectomy surgery usually takes between 4 to 6 weeks, with recovery from minimally invasive techniques in 2 to 4 weeks. During this period, the incision on the palm is cared for to allow healing. Finger exercises and splinting are usually performed to reduce stiffness and regain strength.
