Patient History and Examination
Dupuytren’s Contracture Treatments
Dupuytren’s Contracture treatment at the PHX Plastic Surgery may include:
- Steroid injections
Dr. Jason D. Johnson will discuss the most appropriate method based upon the stage and pattern of the disease and the joints involved. The goal of treatment is to improve finger motion and function; however, complete correction of the finger(s) may not always happen. Even with treatment, the disease may come back. Before treatment, Jason D. Johnson will discuss realistic goals and possible risks.
Splinting and hand therapy are often needed after treatment in order to maintain the improved finger function.
Dupuytren’s has no cure, but PHX Plastic Surgery offers several effective treatments that can improve hand function significantly.
