Needle Aponeurotomy (Needle Aponevrotomy or NA) is a minimally invasive treatment for Dupuytren's contracture. In contrast to surgical treatment, which requires several months of recovery, Needle Aponeurotomy allows a more rapid recovery. In most cases, it is possible to return to near normal activities without bandages within a few days of treatment.

This technique was developed in Paris by Dr. Lermusiaux at the Hopital Laribosière. Dr. Eaton was personally instructed on this method by Dr. Lermusiaux and his colleagues in 2003. Dr. Eaton was the first physician to offer this procedure in the United States. Media coverage of this procedure at The Hand Center is linked here.

Dr. Eaton founded and oversees the Dupuytren Foundation (www.DupuytrenFoundation.org), a 501(c)3 public charity established to promote efforts to find a cure for Dupuytren's  contracture.
