About us

In April 2011, following the publication of the NICE guidance which approved the use of radiotherapy for Dupuytren’s disease, Dr Richard Shaffer set up The Dupuytren’s Practice (formerly Dupuytren’s-Radiotherapy) to treat patients with Dupuytren’s disease, Ledderhose disease and plantar fasciitis in the Guildford area.

Today, the practice offers this service to patients in Birmingham, Chelmsford, Elstree, Guildford, Maidstone, Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Oxford, Portsmouth, Southampton and  Windsor in partnership with GenesisCare, specialist providers of advanced radiotherapy.
