Sainthood - NO

I did not know that Charles Eaton had been nominated for sainthood.

I do believe that at least two hundred patients that went to him rather than submit to the hideous fifty year old zigzag each finger and open the hand palm are extremely grateful to him for having seen the potential of NA.

Whether his motives were humanitarian or monetary makes little difference to us.

The point to be made is that if he had not gone to France we would all be worse off.

When my left hand gets "ripe" I will be back to visit him again.

George,
"submit to the hideous fifty year old zigzag each finger and open the hand palm"

Was your surgery for Dupuytren's so bad that you have to categorize all surgery to be bad like yours. There are thousands of successful surgeries. The techniques have improved tremendously in the last 50 years with microsurgery. My surgery outcome could not have been better and with no pain. I do notice that when others also say that their outcome was very good, it is usually ignored. It is great that there is a choice of the techniques.

Father of US NA

Here is the highly significant thing about Charles Eaton: Despite years of effort on the part of many on this forum to get their now ex-surgeons to look into NA, we have all hit a brick wall that sounds something like "That's been tried. It doesn't work" Eaton not only took the time to investigate NA on the behalf on ONE of his patients, but then he went to France for the training.

Like Fighter Pilots and Matadors, surgeons must believe they can do the job right. That takes a certain ego. Unfortunately that same ego that keeps hands from shaking when saving your life also prevents them being open to taking advice from their patients.

**Not Eaton!***

And the beauty is.........his fellow docs **are** likely to listen to him as he continues to build a clinical track record. He will become the Father of NA in the US.

Gary / Sean

Guess what Gary/Sean, there's a new superior procedure available called NA. Anybody that is aware of this procedure and does not consider it, before the surgery you so dearly love and advocate, is an idiot.

Give up, your petty attempts to bludgeon and harass people into a surgeon's office have failed.

Go slow, Tammy

Tammy:

You will gain by reading through the various postings on this site. Pick and choose as you go... some will be constructive, others will not. But, when it comes to acting on your own hands, please go slow! Don't make any decisions until you must. You may find that your case will progress rapidly... but you may also find that it will be years (if ever) before it progresses to the stage where further medical treatment of any type is needed. Just stay informed of the options, and be ready if and when you need to take action. In the meantime, avoid those known irritants/triggers, and good luck to you.
