There’s a been recent storm of Dupuytren related media coverage:
- A television news story interviewing Dupuytren Foundation executive director Dr. Charles Eaton and Dupuytren Foundation board member Tom Knapp: http://www.wpbf.com/news/whats-brewing-with-stephanie-berzinski-dupuytren-disease/39025076
- Google books chose the chapter on Dupuytren disease authored by Dr. Charles Eaton to be the online example for the latest edition of the classic hand surgery textbook Green’s Operative Hand Surgery, being released this year. The full text can be viewed at https://books.google.com/books?id=cry-CwAAQBAJ&pg=PA128
- Dr. Latha Satish is in the news for winning the International Dupuytren Society’s International Dupuytren Award 2016: http://www.mirm.pitt.edu/featured-news/paper-wins-international-dupuytren-award-2016/
This is the kind of coverage needed to move Dupuytren disease from being “the most common crippling hand problem no one has ever heard of” to a household word to a cured problem about which people say “can you believe they used to do surgery for that?”.
