To help rectify the serious problem of the close-minded negativity of the MS neurological community, Direct-MS is offering to help fund five MS doctors to visit CCSVI treatment centres. This will provide an opportunity for the doctors to see for themselves the reality of CCSVI, the safety and ease of CCSVI treatment, and the types of improvements enjoyed by some after the treatment. MSSC is invited to join this necessary and potentially game-changing initiative.

When I researched CCSVI, I came to find that she is part of the study with other dr's. I haven't had the ccsvi discussion with her yet, but am I reading this right, she doesn't believe in ccsvi? Help me....I am confused
I am not sure why this is such an issue. I mean if you do not think neurologists will help your MS don't go to one.

Now I don't know where you're from scorpion, but your comments that if your Neuro won't help, then don't go to him are somewhat silly, I live in Canada, we have an MS Clinic at our local hospital where there are 2 Neuro's working with each other - you really think it's that easy to change ? The next Centre with an MS Clinic is a 5 hour drive, you really think that's a good option ?

This IR has a long waiting list of people with MS who can't move forward with treatment because they can't find a neurologist willing to refer them.
Neurologists have quite a lot of power, and their closed mindedness is highly relevant. IMHO...
