Who is checking veins+performing angioplasty-N. America

Postby thornyrose76 » Sun May 16, 2010 7:09 pm

Are there any Dr.'s in North America checking veins and performing the angioplasty or are they all being prevented from doing so-only doing the angioplasty if it is via a study? Where do things stand as of today?

I guess I should have clarified. The Dr. Sclafani's of the world (though on hold) ... and Dr. Mehta and The Vascular Group in Albany ... that's fine, they've put themselves out there.

I was meaning doctors treating people under the radar - there are a few I know of ...

Sorry for not being clear.

Georgetown University is doing the diagnostics and intervention upon recommendation of a neurologist. Use your own or one of theirs. Judi
