Much improved version of conventional surgery but still not the simplicity of NA. Of course it's only performed by one man in Belgium. There's as much hope for this in the US than there is for NA.

Segmental Aponeurectomy

Walt,
I spoke with with my surgeon at length about Segmental Aponeurectomy and gave him the full thesis of Moermans. He didn't think it was that great of a departure from the different methods and surgical techniques that are common today in surgery. I was encouraged because the methods of surgery and education now in use, would be transferrable to this procedure. It would not be a waiting game for product approval.

misinformation

As usual, you have to be kidding. What current methods and education are you referring to in your post? The only method that differs from Baron Dupuytren's procedure of 1833 is the zigzag incision or open palm method.

Crippling occurred then and still does.

Sean: "i spoke with my surgeon at length..." this was a hilarious post, thanks for the humor

The issue is like the one I face when I put a minor ding in my car, or get that first rustout, and go to a body shop. They won't do anything less than a complete replacement of the body panel followed by primer, multiple coats of precisely matched color and clearcoat. No matter how small the problem, you're in for $500 minimum. If I say - considering the age and condition of the car, couldn't we just pound out the dent, fill it and spray it? No way. They look at you like you're crazy, then decline the job.

Many of us who follow this forum suspect that the rather drastic surgeries being performed aren't, in the long run, worth the cost in terms of collateral damage and recovery time. Surgeons aren't interested in simpler procedures, but no one seems to have solid statistics either way.

Sigh.....
I see the discussions (?) are still about the same.....
A reaction to jimh tho : if you think surgery hasn't evolved since 1833, you might want to have a good look at dr J.P. Moermans' site, in my humble opinion the best informational site on the net.
And NA ? If I'm correct, Sir Astley Paston Cooper developed and used a method in 1822 ( the baron was maybe still wearing diapers at that time!) which is practically identical to NA ( I think he called it "subcutaneous fasciotomy" ), so not much change there either.
Like I mentioned before, I had surgery 2 years ago, fingers 100% straight, no recurrence (yet), but I have some extension, in my other hand mainly.
Luckily for me, I don't live in the us, but in Belgium, so I have all possible choices, including NA.
When I decide to have something done about my hand, not the first couple of years I hope, I will probably look first at NA (like I stated before). The nearest surgeon (yes, a surgeon !) who performs NA ( he calls it "percutaneous fasciotomy" )lives about 5 mins from my door :).

S.A./Moermans

Eddie,
Have you found any more information about Moermans? Does everyone at his clinic practice S.A.? Does anyone else in Belgium use the procedure? Is Moermans still alive?

Moermans

Sean,
I haven't tried to contact dr Moermans, since I don't think about having surgery or other treatment in the near future, but this is his email : moermans@ccmbel.org
