surgery

I would like to know if anyone can lead me to the best surgeon in the Massachusetts or New Hampshire area for the treatment of Dupuytrens. Many thanks for your suggestions.

early stage surgery

I have been diagnosed one year ago and have developed a 1.5 cm "cord" like nodule in my left foot. Even at this early stage (with no pain and no contracture), the surgeon wants to operate immmediately. Will I increase my chances of stopping the disease if I have the operation now ?
Thank you for your comments or advice.

Non-surgical treatment

My cousin in Minneapolis went to Mayo Clinic and had hand surgeon. IT IS NOW AS BAD OR WORSE THAN BEFORE! He also needs surgery on his other hand. Merck Manual recommends high doses of Vitamin E. He was also told to take potaba. Does anyone know more about these medicines - do they really help?-Steve Fesenmaier, West Virginia Library Commission Research Librarian

Surgery

I had surgery to my small finger, right hand on 19 May, 1999. Prior to surgery my doctor provided no information as to what was causing the contracture of my finger. He set a date for surgery. After surgery he arranged for therapy and a splint. The splint created outward pressure to straighten the finger. Neither the therapy nor the splint were successful. I learned about DupuytrendÕs Contracture by surfing the net. Had I been more informed I would not have undergone the surgery. My finger is still arched and cannot be bent to a full closed position. I experience pain in the other three fingers when I cut food or bend the fingers. I would not recommend surgery, but I believe that needle aponevrotomy would be a better alternative for anyone who can afford the trip to France.

Non-Surgical Cure ?

Hope you can help!

I’m new to the Dupuytren's Forum, but not to Dupuytren's that showed up about 10 years ago. Had surgery on my left hand 2 years ago but Dupuytren's is now back in the L hand worse than ever. So I know from experience surgery is only a stopgap.

I know about the French Needle so I am very interested in info about non-surgical cures. Question:

1) Are there any legit non-surgical cures? Who and where?
2) Is the SUNY Stony Brook cure near going public? Any info on the status?
3) Are there any doctors (or anyone else) doing injections? Who and where?

Please help with any info you have. I don’t want any more surgery!

Thanks.
