These clinics are commercial organisations and pose FAQs they can answer and offer the service indicated. Eg MRV is a great tool in the hands of Prof Haacke but I have seen no evidence that it is as useful in other hands. Plus it is expensive. So why choose it if you are self paying ?
My thought is a list of questions for pwMS about clinics, so they can search FAQs from a position of knowledge. I think there are many clinics offering a CCSVI procedure who use too agressive techniques and cause damage, which is very difficult to repair. Cheer has posted about not tearing vein valves but some doctors still do it. This worries me.
Dr S says his techniques are completely different from three years ago so the FAQs should be different.
