Ledderhose

Im 61 years old and have had ledderhose in both feet for 3 years now. Its terrible. My doctor tells me only a full removal of the associated tissue will help but says he doesnt want to do it because of my age and that it would come back with a vengence. He also says the scar tissue would probably give me as much if not more pain than the ledderhose. Ive complitated removal of both feet. Is there anything out there at all that helps or am I doomed to a life of non stop pain? I also have diabetes and Neouropathy in both feet.

Hi, there are a few options for Ledderhose depending on where you are. After conservative forms of treatment, possible the most used and successful one is RT. Surgery is really considered to be a last resort. You can read more about the options on Gary's blog. He himself was close to being unable to walk, and is now an active runner. http://ledderhose.blogspot.com/p/useful-links.html. Have you looked into the possibility of RT? Your diabetes diagnosis would have to be taken into account by an experienced radiologist.

Dear Catheadred,

I think - without knowing further details - that the option of RADIATION THERAPY should be offered to you. If you like, we could hold a SPECIAL MEDICAL VIDEO CONSULTATION for further examination and discussion of treatment options. If you wish so please contact me under: prof.seegenschmiedt@gmail.com and attach and send appropriate photographs or documentations of your foot soles for further evaluation.

Best regards, Prof. Seegenschmiedt

Re: Ledderhose

Hi Catheadred:
Ledderhose disease is a condition that causes nodules to form on the underside of the foot. The skin and tissue on the underside of the foot become thick and stiff, causing pain and discomfort when you walk.

This is the reason why Ledderhose is also known as “Dupuytren’s in feets the foot while Dupuytren’s contracture affects the hand.

Here are shared some information about "How to treat it"
We all know how important our feet are: if they are affected by a painful condition, our whole day is affected.

If trying to treat Ledderhose at home isn’t working for you, you can ask your doctor about enzyme injections or cryosurgery. Enzyme injections are used to weaken the chord formed in your foot so that the doctor can break it. This restores flexibility and movement in the foot. Furthermore, cryosurgery is a process that uses cooling probes that are inserted into the nodules that have formed and freeze the diseased tissue. I hope this information will helpful to you.
