Dupuytren’s Contracture is a hand condition that draws the fingers inward to the palm, making it very difficult for people to use their hand. It’s relatively rare and not usually painful, but without treatment, the hand can become clawed and disabled. ORA Hand Surgeon, Dr. Tobias Mann, discusses the condition, along with treatment options for those who suffer from it.
Experts say middle-aged men of Northern European descent over the age of 40 are more likely to suffer from Dupuytren’s than others. For more information on this condition, visit ORA’s Hand Center of Excellence and watch a video to learn more about the disease.
