None of this is likely to stop the likes of Marien Simka in Katowice, Poland who makes at least $500,000 per week doing “liberation”
Hmm... Dr. Rose might be right or wrong about CCSVI, but apparently he is NOT BRIGHT or ACCURATE when it comes to money.
Well-publicized treatment rates at the EuroMedic (where Dr. Simka practices): 6 patients a day, 6 days a week.
That's ... no, wait, I can do it in my head ... 36 patients a week.
Costs (paid this myself), also fairly well-publicized:
When means ... hold on ... $360,000/ a week in REVENUE.
So, assuming there were NO EXPENSES from the hospital or the MRV work, or the accommodations, and assuming that no one else (janitors, nurses, radiologists, secretaries, drivers, his fellow surgeons - for Simka does not perform the procedure himself, etc.) shared in any of that income, and assuming the schedule was never interrupted, Rose figures would still be GROSSLY WRONG.
Maybe that money I spent was well-spent or maybe it's all a racket, but why would you listen to someone who writes something like that?
Is he ignorant? Careless? Stupid? If there is there a fourth option, please explain.
First off, $360,000 dollars a week isn't much different from $500,000 a week, some people just round up. Colin Rose says he has heard of Simka doing 10 procedures a day, 5 days a week, which is where the $500,000 number comes from.
Even if it is $360,000 dollars a week, that's $18.7 million dollars annually. That's a lot of money that they're raking in for an untested, experimental procedure.
EDIT: Say what you will, I think we can all agree that a small handful of doctors are raking upwards of a hundred million dollars annually. Never mind the people charging $25,000 or $40,000 or even $80,000. Liberation is worth a lot to these doctors with vested interest in it, maybe even more than pharma CEO's.
ALSO- janitors, nurses, secretaries aren't making very much money annually, that's still tons going to him and his friends for performing an experimental procedure whose inventor says it should not be performed outside of a clinical trial.
