    Dr. Eaton

    Dear Ed,

    Dr. Eaton (Florida) is a wonderful NA practitioner. His information can be found at www.handcenter.org. He is the only NA trained practitioner in the States. All other NA trained practitioners are listed at www.dupuytren.org.

      List

      Frances,
      What is so official about your list. We don't care. Get over it! Do you belong the the French Chamber of Commerce or something similar? Dr. Bourland has a great amount of experience in hand surgery. His knowledge is probably transferable to NA or he wouldn't be doing it. I'm sure he is aware of his legal liabilities,

        Beantown Hand Docs

        Ed, there are no Needle Aponevrotmy practioners
        in your area. There are many excellent Hand Surgeons.
        Personally, I would contact Marie Budalamente, PhD. at
        the Stoney Brook campus of S.U.N.Y.. She is the lead
        investigator of the collagenase study. Lawrence C. Hurst,
        M.D. is the Orthopedist member of the trial. Ask them for
        a referral source. Mass. General would be a good source
        also. Most of us would not recommend traditional hand
        surgery for Dupuytrens. A trip to Europe or Florida would
        provide an interim correction lasting a few years; that
        would be NA. Keep reading posts here to learn about the
        personal experiences of others. Good luck.

            Could you please help me. My father is 75 years old and was just told that he has this disease on his left hand and that he needs surgery. could you please send me some information about this disease. I need to know what to do for him.

            He says that he is in a lot of pain. Could you please tell me if he should have this or not.

              boston Drs

              Try Dr Belski at newton wellesley hospital, or paul feldman at NE baptist....but look into NA from Dr. Eaton in Florida too if he could have that procedure instead.

                    research first

                    please research and see how many successful traditional surgies there are...so many informative posts on this site and those of us who have one or more surgeries are quick to point out the serious butchering outcomes...length of recovery, scar tissue and the most obvious...the more you operate, the more the disease escalates...good luck with your Dad...
