About Dupuytren’s Contracture

Dupuytren’s contractures develop as a result of the thickening of palmar fascia in your hand. Cords may begin as a thick area of tissue in the palm or finger, but over time they may pull the fingers down and prevent the fingers from fully straightening. This deformity is more common in people with Northern European heritage. There is no specific known cause of the development of the contractures. It is easily diagnosed upon physical examination by a hand specialist. Usually the cords develop slowly and sometimes they may remain as a small painless nodule that doesn’t affect finger extension. If this is the case, there is generally no treatment that is needed. Over time the cord may begin to tether the fingers down and affect hand function. Once the bands begin to cross the finger joints causing contractures that affect daily life the patient may be a candidate for treatment with Xiaflex injections. See our “Treatments” section for more on “Xiaflex injections.”

Cast Removal - 5 Fun Facts!

1. The cast saw blade doesn’t spin, it vibrates.👍

2. The saw blade is generally safe, and there is a layer of cotton underneath the fiberglass, but the blade can still cut skin if the operator is not skilled! 😳

3. The blade will generate heat - just like when rubbing 2 sticks together, the friction can heat things up quickly! 🔥

4. My heat management technique keeps things cool. 😎 **as you can see in video, I create a superficial cutting line first. Then I move the saw blade along the cutting line in several passes, using an up and down technique and being careful not to keep the vibrating blade in one spot too long.**

5. I always give my patients the option to keep their cast… but very few choose to keep it!!

What’s in your water??

I want to make sure our amazing Paramus flagship location will deliver both cutting edge orthopaedic care AND a safe occupational environment for our patients and all-star staff!! This includes ensuring we have the purest possible water coming from all of its faucets! 💦

Today we tested for a variety of contaminants in our water including Arsenic, PFAS, chlorine, chlorine byproducts, and Uranium. 🫙

Big thx to @jennifer.vanbeekum for helping with our testing today, and to @healthyhomeexpert for her guidance over the years on how to create these safe occupational environments!!
