RT treatment outside of US

I’ve read as much as I could on this site about RT and believe it’s my best next step to treat my DC that’s become active near my thumb.

From what I can tell the cost in the US seems excessive and I’m a bit concerned about about the level of experience. Maybe I’m wrong, please correct me if I am. If anyone has good results with RA in the US, especially California where I live, please let me know.

With that said, I’m looking at perhaps traveling to either the UK or Germany. I’d love to get feedback on the cost and experience with these locations / doctors as a traveler from the US

I appreciate the help and wish everyone the best.

Re: RT treatment outside of US

I myself made the trip to Hamburg, and there are several patient experiences reported about that here https://www.dupuytren-online.info/dupuyt...xperiences.html

But...
ProfS now works from Essen and he has provided hints and tips in a post here https://www.dupuytren-online.info/Forum_...2268&page=4

If you are a member of DART on FB someone has posted their experience of treatment in Essen here https://www.facebook.com/groups/16227481...35789886644595/

You could also ask there, but...
Whereabouts in CA? Experienced doctors treating RT that come up are UCSF Dr Gottschalk, Reno Dr Guy Jones, Dr Paulson in Petaluma, Dr Prabhakar Tripuraneni San Diego CA.

Thank you. I live in Northern CA near Sacramento. I’d love to get it done here but have heard costs are extraordinary.

There is a doctor referred to in Sacramento, but the discussion on FB suggests she is not that experienced yet, and uses the 7 day protocol. If Guy Jones in Reno is too far he himself recommends Dr Gautam Prasad in the Davis area.

Thank you. I will look into Dr Prasad while investigating other options.
