Dupuytren’s disease

Dupuytren’s disease is an abnormal thickening of the fascia, the tissue just beneath the skin of the palm. It often starts with firm lumps in the palm. Gradually, these lumps may grow into firm cords stretching from the palm into the fingers, potentially causing the fingers to bend into the palm. While the cause of Dupuytren’s disease is unknown, it's more common in men over age 40 and in people of Northern European descent.

Symptoms of Dupuytren’s disease usually include a small lump or series of lumps and pits within the palm, which are generally firm and adherent to the skin. Over time, a cord may develop, extending from the palm into one or more fingers, with the ring and little fingers most commonly affected.

Why Does my Wrist


  • Dr Raven is a caring, extremely experienced and thoughtful orthopedist. He has been very helpful to me, dealing with several orthopedic problems (and one accident) related to my hands. I would recommend him highly to anyone needing an orthopedic specialist related to a hand or upper arm injury or condition.
  • Dr Raven has the expertise and experience not just for adult upper extremity injuries but pediatrics too. My 15 year old son broke his wrist while snowboarding and I was worried about his growth plates. Dr raven knew exactly what to do. As an ER doctor I see the work of many community doctors and I did and will continue to trust Dr Raven
