A radiation oncologist has specialized training in performing radiation treatment for people with cancer and those with certain noncancerous (benign) conditions, like Duputyren's Contracture and Ledderhose Disease.
Radiation therapy is a non-surgical treatment that can stop or slow down Dupuytren's Contracture in its early stage. In radiation therapy, the nodules and cords associated with Dupuytren's are irradiated. This is typically done over five days in a row applying an efficient dose . After a break of 10-12 weeks, this treatment is repeated. Typically this softens the nodules (and sometimes also cords) and prevents contraction of the hand.
