Dupuytren's fasciectomy in Middlesex and West London
Dupuytren's disease is a condition that occurs when the
connective tissue in the palm of the hand thickens, often forming into
small nodules that can extend to form cords. These cords of abnormal
tissue are benign but can contract, pulling a finger or the thumb
towards the palm (Dupuytren's contracture), and affecting the appearance
and function of the hand. A range of non-surgical treatments is
available for milder cases of Dupuytren's contracture, however where
hand function is seriously compromised, surgery can be a very effective
Miss Tross is experienced in Dupuytren's fasciectomy, a
surgical procedure to remove the contracted cords of tissue from the
palm, sometimes in conjunction with the overlying skin. Performed under
general anaesthetic as day case surgery, the procedure has a high success rate, with rates of recurrence as low as 8%.
Offering expert carpal tunnel decompression
Caused when the median nerve that controls movement and sensation in
the hand becomes compressed as it passes through the wrist, carpal
tunnel syndrome (CTS) is characterised by pain, tingling or numbness in
the hands and fingers. It is more common in women than men and is
associated with a family history of the condition, injuries to the
wrist, arthritis and pregnancy.
Mild to moderate CTS can be treated with steroids and
splinting, however in cases that do not respond to conservative
treatment or have persisted for more than six months, Miss Tross offers
carpal tunnel decompression. Using local anaesthesia in an open or
arthroscopic procedure, she cuts the tight carpal ligament, reducing the
pressure on the median nerve and relieving the symptoms. Carpal tunnel
decompression also prevents permanent damage to the median nerve.
