NA in Canada

Hello,
I understand that the doctor in Montreal who does NA does not take out of province patients for insurance reasons.
Has anyone heard of any other doctors in Canada who perform NA? Many thanks!

NA in Canada

Caroline, I know of one other NA practitioner in Canada apart from Dr Spacek in Montreal.
Dr. Paul Binhammer who practices at Sunnybrook & Women's in Toronto and teaches at U.of T.
I had an NA done by Dr Binhammer on Feb. 28 this year. The results thus far are excellent with hardly any reversion to bending of my finger. His appointment secretary's email address is Karen.Ball@sw.ca.
Good luck, hope this helps. H.

NA in Toronto Canada

I live in northern BC. I am just back from NA procedure at Sunnybrook hospital in Toronto. I flew there and back, stayed a week with friends but had the procedure done on the second last day I was there, and flew home the very next day with my splint on my hand.
The procedure was done by Dr. Paul Binhammer and although the anesthetic needles pinched a bit, some more than others, the procedure was relatively painless, once the hand was frozen. I have before and after pictures for those of you who are interested, I can email them to you. I have only one hand that is affected by DC, and two fingers that were bent to over 30 degrees.
Don't bother going to see Dr. Binhammer if you are just early stage. He likes to see at least 30 degrees of curvature in the fingers, or else there is no marked difference in "snapping" the elastic cord at all.
My BC medical covered the procedure which is way cheaper than open hand surgery! And the flight will be a tax write-off for me, a benefit of living in a small northern town such as this.
And I did see a surgeon in Edmonton Alberta in March 2005. I had my name put on a waiting list to have my hand done with the open hand surgery method. The surgeon said it would be about a year of waiting. Well the day after I got back from Toronto, his booking nurse phoned me to say that my name had finally come up. So that ws a nineteen month wait. So I declined and thanked her very much!
One week after NA in Toronto, I am back at home, typing easily and grooming dogs in my home business. It's wonderful!

edmonton doctor.

Dear Marlen, I hope you are doing well after your surgery. I just found out today that my 14 year nephew may have D.C. I was reading your story and I live in Edmonton, Alberta. Would you beable to give me the name of the surgeon you were going to see? I understand the wait list is quite long and that is why you went to Toronto. How was this experience for you? Please reply if you can. Thanks so much

Laser therapy

Darlene,

You may wish to read my posts on Low Intensity Laser Therapy. I had my Dupuytren's treated this way and avoided severe contraction and surgery. It has been two years since I have had a treatment and the only sign that I ever had Dupuytren's is a small nodule remains.

I keep reading about all the extreme measures everyone in this forum are resorting to. It is really unfortunate. I highly recommend that people try laser therapy. You can always resort to other methods if it doesn't work. Or you can stay on the surgical waiting list while you get laser therapy.

The younger you are the better the results. A 14 year old boy would respond quite well. There are independent BioFlex clinics in Edmonton. You may find the clinics by visting www.bioflexlaser.com

Please take a look at my earlier posts to learn more and then decide for yourself.

Best wishes

Bob

Marlene,

Here is the clinic I would recommend in Edmonton. If this clinic is not convenient, then visit the Meditech site and choose another clinic.

I have met Dr. Bennett on several occassions. He's an excellent doctor and will give you his frank opinion.
