It's a disease most people have never heard of andprobably can't begin to pronounce. But three percent of the U.S. population has it, a hand deformity that can make it impossible to straighten their fingers or even their toes. It's a disease so old; it may date back all the way to the time of the vikings. Surgery used to be the only way to fix it, until now.
