Gary,
You are either stupid or an exaggerator of the truth.

No. I'm not Gary/Sean (whoever he is). I've been trying to get a handle on Dr Eaton -- just like everyone else. I posted to let you know what my (local) hand surgeon had to say...

I guess I could have used a fake name, but that would have been disingenuous. I could have left my email address off, too -- like just about everyone else.

And -- since no good deed goes unpunished -- 'Fred' responds with an insult. Way to go, Fred!

dr eaton?

Has anyone received feedback or additional info on his procedure yet? If he does do some form of needle fasciotomy, why can't a local dr? He has my pics and await his judgement

thx

Info on Needle Aponeurotomy

An Amazing Statement

Same article is on the website: http://www.medicinenet.com/Dupuytren_Contracture/article.htm

Wonder if the article on the University of Miami is copied from somewhere else? Still doesn't mean NA is available in the states, but one can keep hoping!

An Amazing Statement

From the Miami Website:


"Sometimes the surgeon can release the scarred tissue by carefully cutting it with a needle. This procedure is referred to as a needle aponeurotomy."

An amazing statement considering the fact that the abundant lack of this procedure in the US has set off a firestorm of postings in this thread. Perhaps what they meant was "Sometimes savvy Americans fly to Paris to deal with Dups." Is there something going on in the state that brought us the hanging chad that we should know about?

My experience is exactly like that of Jim H.:

"after each surgery, signs of DC soon appeared in other areas and progressed rapidly for a few months, then slowed drastically or stopped"

Yes, it proves nothing, but who else has experienced the same pattern?
