Specialty Procedures

In addition to these procedures, Beebe orthopaedists are able to treat a variety of ongoing conditions, including Dupuytren’s contracture. The contracture is named after Baron Gillaume Dupuytren, the first surgeon  to operate on this hand deformity in the early 1800s. Dupuytren’s contracture symptoms include having the palm of your hand become gradually tighter and thicker. Eventually, your fingers, especially your pinky and ring fingers, may curl inward. This can make it hard to use your hand, put on gloves, or even put your hand in your pocket.
