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 treatment option.


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.
