Dupuytren's Contracture Treatments
First diagnosed and described by Napoleon's personal physician in 1831, Dupuytren's contracture is a hand deformity that affects the connective tissue under the skin of the palm. While there is no cure, Dr. Bidic offers Dupuytren's contracture treatment, including surgery, in New Jersey.

Dupuytren's contracture begins when knots of tissue form in the palm, eventually developing into a thick cord that can pull one or more fingers (most often the ring and pinky fingers) into a bent position. Once the fingers are bent, they cannot be straightened. This renders everyday activities such as shaking hands, placing your hand in your pockets, putting on gloves or grasping large objects extremely difficult. Dr. Bidic has extensive experience and is fully certified in the surgical and non-surgical treatment of this condition, ranging from the latest FDA-approved collagenase injections (XIAFLEX®) to in-office needle aponeurotomy to outpatient surgery for recurrent cases.
