Dupuytrens Contracture Release

Dr. Garcia has received special training in the Connecticut Combined Hand Surgery Fellowship, along with Board Certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This allows him to offer skilled assessments and surgical options to improve functionality for a variety of hand, wrist and elbow conditions, as well as plastic surgery options to improve appearance.

Dupuytren’s Contracture is a condition of the hand in which knots of tissue form under the skin that can pull fingers into a bent position. This makes it difficult for the fingers to straighten and can interfere with normal hand function. Dupuytren’s Contracture is not usually painful but can lead to other conditions such as plantar fibromatosis. Although the cause of this condition is not known, it may run in families and can be influenced by tobacco and alcohol.

At his Glens Falls office, Dr. Garcia can answer your questions about Dupuytren’s Contracture, personally assess your condition, explain your treatment options, and determine an appropriate course of treatment. If necessary, Dr. Garcia can perform a fasciectomy and remove tissue in your hand allowing the finger to straighten out and improve function.

Some Risk Factors for Dupuytren’s Contracture Include:

  • Men over 40 are ten times more likely than women to develop the condition
  • Can be an inherited disorder
  • People of Northern European descent are at higher risk
  • Tobacco and alcohol use
  • Possibly related to autoimmune disorders and diabetes
