About us

The British Dupuytren’s Society is a UK based charity founded in August 2011 as a patient organisation, supported by medical professionals, and is a daughter organisation of the International Dupuytren Society (IDS).

The Board of Trustees consists entirely of volunteers, the chair and the treasurer are Dupuytren’s patients and the other  patient trustee is a  Ledderhose patient. Our  Doctors trustees are three hand surgeons one of whom is also involved in research, one Urology consultant, two radiation oncologists and a podiatrist.

 The Society also has a panel of volunteer Doctors acting in an advisory capacity, and recently we were joined by a massage therapist as advisor, who is very experienced treating Dupuytren’s patients.
