I have seen several. The one I liked the most was Dr. Kay Kirkpatrick. She is with Resurgens at their Roswell location. She was trained by Dr. Eaton himself on the NA procedure and has done them for quite a few years. She does not inject Xiaflex but does have an associate that does. Dr. Kirkpatrick was extremely knowledgeable, spends lots of time answering questions and is pretty laid back. Those are all traits I love in a doctor.

I had Xiaflex done before I ever saw Dr. K and it was done by Dr. Bronier Costas at The Hand and Upper Extremity Center of Georgia. That is at Northside Hospital in Atlanta. He did a fine job with the Xiaflex, but I didn't care for him personally. He was a bit arrogant and always seemed rushed.

I was not a candidate for the NA procedure. That was a great disappointed. But I had specifically chosen to see Dr. K. because of her training with Dr. Eaton. I was really hoping she could do the NA on my right hand. Instead, I needed hand surgery and because Dr. K. is pretty far from where I live, I opted to use a good surgeon closer to home. I had surgery last September.
