Dupuytren’s Contracture or Morbus Dupuytren is a condition caused when one or more fingers become permanently bent or in a flexed position, hard nodules or strands. This condition does not resolve itself and may require surgical intervention.
A surgical procedure under local anesthesia will release that tight pulley in the finger through a very small incision. Sutures are removed after 2 weeks.
Hospital Admission: Outpatient
