Great video! I especially liked hearing how common vein angioplasty is, and how safe it is. I am quite familiar with arterial angioplasty, and was already knew how safe it was generally, but learning about vein angiouplasty and that it is even safe was interesting.
As far as the neuros, I think Dr. S. got it right as the last comment on the clips ... Godamned arogance.,
They don't want to believe that for the past 30-40 years they have been telling their very sick MS patients that it is an autoimmune disease and despite all their constant work there isn't much to do aobut it, and it turns out they are flat wrong.
Also the comment early on thast neuros are used to telling their patient's that their symptoms are untreatable and discouraging "false" hope. I had a neuro tell me that he didn't know anything about Zamboni or his work, but he could tell me what it was, another crazy dr. selling false hope. His attitude was clearly that the proper mental attitude for an MS patient was HOPELESS despondency. I was furious, couldn't even sleep that night, and never went back to him.
He is in Santa Rosa California. Anyone want his name?
