I know they're not running a charity and the surgeons are highly skilled and deserve to make a good living - but it still seems excessive. After all, varicose vein treatment (which I imagine is probably comparable in terms of time and expertise with the liberation procedure) costs between £1,500 and £2,000 per leg. That's the sort of price I would say was more reasonable.
I suspect its because they know people are desperate to try CCSVI and they want to capitalise on it.
This is not a criticism, in all walks of life someone makes money, look at the recent volcano drama-the hotel we ended up staying in charged us twice as much as they normally would,and trying to get on as a foot passenger from calais to the UK became very expensive very quickly.
Thats' the world we live in sadly
