Dr. Luanne Metz, the neurologist who is leading the provincial study and is on sabbatical from her position as director of the Foothills Hospital MS clinic in Calgary, estimates about 1,000 of the 11,000 MS sufferers in the province have undergone liberation treatment already.
About 95 per cent of MS patients address the issue when they see their doctors, she said.
First, I wonder what the percentage is here in the US, of patients who bring up CCSVI to their doctors? Is awareness growing?
Second, the estimate that nearly 10% of people in her province have had the procedure seems high to me but maybe it is accurate?
