CCSVI doctors in Colorado

Postby shawnvirgo » Wed Feb 02, 2011 8:05 pm

I am desperately wanting to find a doctor in Colorado, preferably in the Boulder, Denver area, who can help with my getting tested for CCSVI and treatment if necessary. I have Kaiser insurance and have not found a Dr. with Kaiser that will even discuss it with me. Can anyone help?

I was diagnosed with MS in August 2010.

Thank you,
Shawn Caroline

Can I get a list for Colorado? I'm in Wyoming, but MN is quite far for this procedure

Sorry to seem like I had any real info. I just PM'd about where I live and that I've been following this for awhile and haven't heard of any doctors here. I just didn't want to say where I live on the thread. I do remember on an early version of the Hubbard map there were 2 IRs in the Denver area listed, but they disappeared. Hopefully someday we'll all have local doctors well-versed in the procedure!

Shawn, I "HAD" Kaiser and fought & fought, but they blew off. You know their slogan ---> THRIVE......What a joke. I flew to http://www.communitycare.com/Practices/ ... /CCSVI.asp and they have very reasonable self-pay fee. I did it and VERY happy I did!! My sister went here ---> http://veincaremn.com/home/ and her insurance covered all but $75.00.

don't speak of ccsvi...speak of the lightedness and pressure in head, ears, etc....they will need to check for blockage...they will find it then they will treat it.
