Dupuytren's Disease Fort Worth
This is a disease process that causes the fascia in the hands and fingers to contract and form cords. This can cause firm, painful nodules in the palm, or even contract pulling on the fingers. This makes it difficult or impossible to extend the finger completely causing difficulty placing the hand flat on a table, putting it in your pocket, and can make it difficult to grasp objects. This is usually treated with outpatient surgery.
