Quebec College of Physicians and Surgeons made a similar announcement last week. Hopefully, other provinces and territories will soon follow.
The British Columbia College of Physicians & Surgeons https://www.cpsbc.ca/node/213 will continue to treat patients who need help, said Susan Prins, the college's director of communications.
Prins stressed doctors are not ethically obligated to re-do an experimental CCSVI procedure, but would treat complications that result, such as a blood clot.
"The expectation would be that they would take care of that patient in need, absolutely," said Prins.
