What is Dupuytren’s Contracture Surgery?

Dupuytren’s Contracture Surgery, also known as a Dupuytren’s Release, is a surgical procedure that is performed to correct the contracture of the hand. This procedure involves releasing the affected fascia and straightening the affected finger.

There are several surgical options for the treatment of Dupuytren’s Contracture, including:

  • Fasciectomy: This is the most common surgical procedure for Dupuytren’s Contracture. It involves removing the affected fascia to release the contraction and straighten the finger.
  • Needle Aponeurotomy: This is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using a needle to release the fascia and straighten the finger.

However, in general, most individuals experience a period of discomfort and swelling in the hand and finger for several days following the procedure.

You will typically be given pain medication to manage discomfort during the recovery period. You may also be advised to wear a splint or brace to support the affected finger and prevent any unnecessary movements. Physical therapy may also be recommended to help improve hand function and mobility.

In most cases, individuals can return to work and other activities within a few weeks following Dupuytren’s Contracture Release.
