Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after doctors for Dupuytrens in Palm Beach. The hand condition is progressive in nature and requires careful followup from a hand specialist. It begins with lumps and pitting in the palms. There is subsequent development of contractures in the palm and fingers that show as tight bands in the direction of the fingers. As the disease progresses the finger joints become stiff and bent, therefore severely limiting the function of the hand.

It is commonly seen in patient’s with northern European descent and was frequently seen in the Vikings. It is also more frequent in patients with diabetes.
