Clinics and hospitals providing radiation therapy

Many hospitals that we know of and that provide radiotherapy for Dupuytren's disease are located in Germany, Austria or Switzerland and listed on our German web site. Should you know of any other institutions, in any country, please let us know!

Covid-19: for the time being some clinics are offering video consultation. We can't judge the effectiveness without direct contact with a doctor but it might save time and is certainly safer. Clnics with video consultation are indicated in the addresses below.

Should we not be listing a radiotherapist in your vicinity who has experience in treating non-malignant diseases, you might try finding one yourself. A good start are university clinics or oncologists who sometimes also treat Dupuytren's or at least know of someone who does. You can find oncologists world-wide e.g. through the web site

Please note that clinics are listed alphabetically, usually sorted by city, in the USA sorted by state. Our sorting does not indicate any preference or seniority!

Comments: In the U.S. most, if not all, clinics use electron beams while in Europe x-rays are more popular. This may have historic reasons, we are not aware of major benefits or drawbacks of either method for the treatment of Dupuytren or Ledderhose disease (the equipment for electron beams being more expensive).

For insurance coverage please check with your carrier. We understand that the ICD9 Diagnosis code is 728.6 - benign condition contracture.

Germany and Austria:

Germany and Austria have a variety of clinics experienced with applying radiotherapy to Morbus Dupuytren and Ledderhose. They are listed on our German web site. Being frequently asked about recommendations we list below clinics which have experience in treating Dupuytren's and Ledderhose disease and which we believe suitable for patients from outside Germany. We appreciate reports from patients having visited those clinics. The sequence of clinics is by postal code and not indicating any priority.

Note: Electron beams require a technically more sophisticated equipment resulting in higher treatment costs. Both, x-rays and electron beams, are suitable for treating Dupuytren's and Ledderhose disease.
