What is the correct dosage for Dupuytren contracure?

Dr. Herazy,

I would like to know what is the correct dosage for the different Dupuytren medicines I see on your website.

Thank you.


Greetings Emily,

There are two basic ways I could answer your question, since you did not specify if you meant a starting dosage  or a treatment dosage.

The starting dosage DCI recommends is always what is on the label of each therapy product you are using; start at the manufacturer’s recommended dosage.  That particular information is supplied not only on the bottle, but we provide a separate sheet of information that lists the starting dosages for all the products we sell.

The Dupuytren treatment dosage could be an entirely different dosage than the starting dosage.   There are no recommended dosages from a treatment standpoint; we only provide reasonable starting points from which YOU determine your actual treatment level based on what it takes to get YOUR contracted tissue to change size, shape, density, thickness, adherence to the underlying fascia of the palm, and increased range of motion of your finger contractures.    This is a “do-it-yourself” project of the highest order of importance.  I can guide you to the steps of finding YOUR effective Dupuytren treatment dosage, but it is your job to actually determine what it takes to get the job done for you.

If you do not understand this, please let me know, since it is a critical concept that determines the difference between success and failure.
