Same procedure, different name?

Hi everyone,

Here is Walts reply,

"I've told him that he needs to CORRECT the procedure name....is same
thing. If he doesn't change it, he'll be wasting a lot of time answering
email for no reason.

Walt"

Thanks for the explanation...

Why So Long?

Needle aponeurotomy,needle aponovrotomy, subcutaneous fasciotomy, .......
A rose, by any other name ......
Just different names for the same (or similar) treatment.

Why So Long?

This is a monumental sea-change for all U.S. sufferers of Dups. Now, for the first time, Americans have a choice of treatment within the U.S. One can only wonder why this has taken so long to come about? All Dr. Eaton had to do was go to Paris, study this procedure, return to the US and set up shop. I'm sure this was done at his own expense, and no doubt he'll be making less $$$$ per hand for this simple but effective treatment. Have I just answered my own question? Let's hope not. In any case, I imagine the good Dr. Eaton will be getting so may appointment requests that other open minded surgeons will follow suit.

Monumental Indeed!!

Randy,
You're so right. This is monumental and too long in
coming. I'm sure that Dr. Eaton will have patients lined
up at his doors. I have a few people to contact that suffer
from Dupuytrens and traveling to Europe was not feasible
for them. I wish him all the success and prosperity that
he deserves. Hopefully others will follow his lead.

Dr. Eaton

Wouldn't it be wonderful if Dr. Eaton got together a number of other hand drs and taught them NA? Or, what if Dr. Eaton invited one of the French NA drs to come over and teach more USA drs the NA? Seems like it could work to me.

Dr Eaton

People, think about this: Those of us who read and post to this sight, more than any organization in the world, have the power to help spread the practice of NA nationwide. When all who visit here are made aware of Dr. Eaton and he becomes overwhelmed with patients from all across the US, the basic laws of supply and demand will force other surgeons to take note and get on board. Whatever resistance to NA that may has existed is failing. Essentially, the Cat Is Out Of The Bag. Let's do our part to make sure he/she is well fed.

It is interesting that on Dr. Eaton's website that he states that recurrence is more likely following NA than surgery. It is the same information that I have been reading for some time. It might be a limiting factor for some surgeons to do NA. It is good to have a choice available, however. For some people it might make more sense to have NA. It will come down to the patients preference.

NA

Of course I'm delighted to see NA now starting to be available in the U.S. But - if American surgeons are going to charge $500 more for the procedure than their European peers - and we can't get our insurance companies to pay for it - maybe I'd rather apply that $500 to a vacation in Paris.
