amazing statement

I believe the article on the Miami website was copied from www.medicinenet.com.

According to the biography of the author, he is a rheumatologist (spelling?) in Southern California associated with the University of California at Irvine.

My suspicion is that the article does not mean to imply that NA is available in the US.

NA in the USA

I am rooting for Dr. Eaton. The vast majority of hand docs in the USA are out for $$$$$$$. They do not care about treating their patients with the best treatments available. I speak from bitter experiences. Caring docs like Dr. Eaton are our best hope. One day I pray he will travel to France to be trained in NA.

Great News

Walt,
Thanks for this info. Just visited Dr. Eaton's website
and can't believe that NA is finally available and probably
covered by most health insurance!

NA in U.S.

I hope this puts an end to the discussion that the AMA is not letting NA come to the U.S. It is just a matter of training.

Wow!

Sean, you for once may actually have put your thumb on the problem. Inadequately trained hand surgeons, or perhaps a medical educational system woefully behind the times.

This is scarier than I thought!

Thank God one of them has seen the light!

Wow!

I am so excited! I am sending an email to Dr. Eaton right now. God bless him. What great timing. I am so greatful to you all in this forum for keeping me informed about the Dupuytren's Disease news. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

NA in Florida

I am writing this from my hotel room in Paris. I have received treatment on both hands the last two days from Dr. Lermusiaux at his office in Gagny outside of Paris. He mentioned to me today, that he had been visited by a "hand surgeon from Florida" at the Hopital Laribosière in Paris. I failed to follow up as to the name, but feel confident that he was referring to Dr. Eaton. Both hands responded well to treatment. I have now seen Drs Badois, Rappaport and Lermusiaux for treatment of DD during the last three years. I can unequivocally recommend them all. In all fairness, however, I must say that it is obvious to me why Dr. Lermusiaux is referred to as the "father of NA".

~dq~Needle Aponeurotomy vs.Needle Aponovrotomy

Has anyone determined the difference, if any, between these two procedures? Im interested in avoiding the expense of a trip to Paris, if possible. Just sent a note to Walt Stagner to see if he has a take on this. BTW, his site on DC is terrific!

Thanks to everyone in advance...
