Just to reassure you, we will not share your details with anyone outside of The Westbourne Centre.


Dupuytren's fasciectomy is a surgery to remove scar-like tissue from under the skin of the fingers and palm of the hand which has caused the fingers to curl.

This procedure is often covered by the NHS, although some patients choose to skip the queue and pay for it privately.

Dupuytren's fasciectomy is performed at The Westbourne Centre in our state-of-the-art operating theatre, using a local anaesthetic (LA) and analgesic.  It is a fairly quick procedure and the use of LA means you are not in the Centre more than a couple of hours.
