Just to mention, there are other options available besides surgery, the latest being xiaflex (collagenase clostridium histolyticum) Collagenase injections.
If used properly this can be an excellent alternative to traditional surgery. Check out www.Myhandhealth.Com and click on xiaflex (collagenase clostridium histolyticum) or dupuytrens.

Hand surgeons take care of dupuytren's disease.
Whether it is by a traditional open fasciectomy, removing the tissue or a limited procedure such as limited open fasciotomy or percutaneous needle aponeurotomy a hand surgeons experience and training is what is needed. For more information regarding newer treatments na and xiaflex (collagenase clostridium histolyticum) see

In brief: Hand surgeon
The surgery for dupuytren's contracture is called a fasciectomy and is performed by a hand surgeon.
A hand surgeon is typically a general, orthopaedic or plastic surgeon who has completed a 1 year fellowship in hand surgery. Always make sure your surgeon is board certified and a hand surgeon should have a certificate of additional qualification (caq) in hand surgery. Non-surgical treatment exist.

An experienced hand surgeon is agood resource for dupuytrens surgery.
Surgery can be quite intricaten and is very dependient uon a variety of factors. There definitely is an advantage to the more experienced operator for the more sever ecases, especially repeat surgery and surgery that has had previuos procedures such as failed aponeurotomy.

Dupuytren's contracture surgery can be highly complicated and risky.
Although both plastic and orthopaedic surgeons receive training in this area, the condition is best treated by a certified hand surgeon with extensive experience. Although surgery is still performed for this condition, other treatment options exist. See a certified hand surgeon for more information.
