As a hand specialist, Dr. Ferraro can treat Dupuytren’s contracture and other hand conditions.
An estimated 16 million Americans suffer from Dupuytren’s contracture. What begins as lumps or dimples under the skin of the palms becomes painful contraction of the hand as a rope-like cord pull down on fingers.
Dupuytren’s contracture is caused from a build-up of collagen under the skin. It may affect one or more fingers. Worsening over time, it is painful and constricts range of motion in the hands and fingers.
