    Saw your e of last July re NA in Australia. I've been diagnosed by a GP recently. I've only one hand (lost right with a stroke long ago) so this is a blow and i HAVE to get this right. Can you tell me the name of any Australian Dr's I can trust to confirm diagnosis, pleeeze? (live in northeastern Victoria). Thanks, mate.

      Needle Aponeurotomy in Australia


      I am very interested to know if this procedure is being performed in Australia. I have heard good results from France, but that ia a long way away!

        NA in Australia

        Noni

        There are no reported surgeons doing NA in Australia. There have been a couple of Australians who have gone to Paris for treatment and have reported their outcomes to this forum.

          NA for Australians - DON~sq~T WAIT

          I have just returned to Australia from Paris where I had two NA sessions on my Stage 4 DC of the little finger on my left hand. I was treated by the inventor of the treatment, Dr Lermusiaux. I simply emailed him pictures of my hand, he responded almost immediately, and within two weeks I was on the plane headed for his suburban Paris office.
          The two treatments were a week apart. Each took around 20 minutes and were virtually painless. And now I have an almost straight finger! Because of the advanced stage my DC was at, I have to wear a thermo-plastic splint at night for the next month or so to complete the straightening process. Dr Lermusiaux arranged for me to have the splint custom made at the Lariboisiere Hospital fo 38 Euro.
          I figure that at around AU$1800 for the return airfare to Paris, another AU$1000 or so for accommodation for 9 days, plus my living expenses, I got an absolute bargain! Not only did I have a fantastic holiday in a truly wonderful city, but I got my finger fixed too!
          So, I urge all Australians with DC not to procrastinate like I did. Go to Paris and get straightened out!
          I am more than happy help anyone in Australia with more info if you need it, just email me.

              i was interested to know how much they charge for the procedure and at what stage they will do it. i have an early stage of DC - a growing node but no loss of flexion yet. however i need to type every day, be able to use a camera, and i rock climb. (research unfortunately suggests it is twice as common in those of us who climb over a period of years!)

                charges

                Charges vary widely depending on country (same, by the way, for radiotherapy).

                While some doctors also apply NA prior to contracture, the usual case is a 15 - 45 degree contracture. It also depends on the áffected joint: MCP (base joint) is usually easier to treat while PIP (middle joint) is more difficult and usually treated earlier than MCP.
