Dr. Kline about 2 hours after the NA treatment by Dr Lermusiaux, seeing the sights in Paris!
In the meantime, as I watched my little fingers gradually draw down, every day use – such as putting my hands in my pockets, putting them flat on a table, swimming laps, playing my guitar or shaking hands – become more and more difficult. I began reading all that I could about Dupuytren’s condition and stumbled across a website on needle aponevrotomy (NA). I read about this technique with great interest; needle aponevrotomy had not even been mentioned by the 2 hand surgeons who had examined my hands. After much research of the current medical literature and after contacting other Dupuytren’s patients who all had excellent results after having NA on their hands – including a Pediatric Neurosurgeon – I decided not to wait for my hands to deteriorate further. I made the trip over to Paris in 2002 to be treated by Dr Lermusiaux.
