I have had Dupuytens Contracture for a number of years in both hands, my right hand ring finger was especially badly effective by the disease plus i also had a problem with the little finger. Mr Read was my consultant at Hemel Hempstead hospital and recommended that have i have a operation to release the tendons in both my ring and little fingers in my right hand. Mr Read expanded everything about the operation which went ahead May 2019. I am so pleased with the outcome and can’t thank Mr Read enough for the skin graft and the release of my fingers. Mr Read has examined my hand since my operation and is very pleased with the outcome. I would like to say a big thank you to Mr Read and his team. Mr S Fountain
I saw Mr Read after experiencing extreme pain in my hand carrying out day to day activities. He advised me that I needed a trapeziectomy with ligament reconstruction. He told me it would be 3 months before I started to feel the benefit. He wasn't wrong. But after the operation and following extensive physiotherapy, 5 months on I have absolutely no regrets. I have just found the list of things I had stopped doing before the operation and can now do them all and with no pain.
