needle aponeurotmy

Thanks Jimmy for the information about Dr. Eaton in Jupiter...I did see a hand surgeon here in Florida who diagnosed me with DC and he said surgery would be indicated once my fingers were completely contracted. I first developed a nodule on left ring finger nuckle at the age of 48. An internal medicine doctor I worked for diagnosed it as arthritis. Next, nodules developed on my right middle finger and right pinky. Then came the lump in the palm of my right hand, now I had very obvious chords and can't flatten my hand and everything is pulling to the right. The diagnosis for DC was made about four years ago. I am of Northern European descent and I am a drinker. I met a woman of English descent in Australia who also has DC and also likes a fine red wine. I have a nodule on my right foot, I didn't know that nodules could develope there, but after reading the discussions here I am now curious about whether it is DC also.

Dupuytrens Contraction

Trying to locate someone in central Florida that performs Needle Aponeurotomy as a solution rather than invasive surgery. I know there is a Hand Center in Jupiter but that is quite a ride.

You Have it Easy

Bob -

Your pretty lucky to have Eaton a couple of hours drive away. Two years ago I flew to Jupiter from my home in Wisconsin to have NA done.

Bob,

I came from Los Angeles to see Eaton. I'd do it again in a heartbeat, except that Denkler is the West Coast expert at this point. Look at travel expense as just part of the cost of the treatment. If you've been through OS recovery, a day or two out of pocket is nothing.

Some new (or old ones) are appearing ; but, have full use of hand and fingers. Do not expect to go back for many months or perhaps years.
