Hello....The condition affects a layer of tissue that lies under the skin of palm.Dupuytren's contracture mainly affects the ring finger.its most commonly associated with diabetes,even in smoking and alcoholics... Surgery is not a major one ... Doctor give anesthesia and release the tension in cord ... Injecting a type of enzyme into the taut cord palm can soften and weaken it,but its all painful procedure with no specificity.
