CCSVI in Israel

Postby Eyal » Sat Jan 09, 2010 4:49 am

I am Eyal, 43 y/o male, SPMS diagnosed in July '98.
I just wanted to update on the CCSVI status in Israel:
My MS friend went to see Prof. Ariel Miller, a neurologist,
head of MS center in Carmel hospital in Haifa.
Apparently, he is looking into the matter very seriously -
went to Ferara and met the Italian staff working on it.
Another neurologist, head of MS center in Beilinson hospital
in Petach Tikva, Dr. Ronit Mosberg, believes in CCSVI
very deeply. My wife met her a few days ago.

BUT, I still haven't found a place to check my veins, let alone treat them.

Yippie! Israeli doctors seem to be very open-minded and cutting edge on many medical issues.

Neurologists cannot check your veins. Go to an interventional radiologist. They would do the liberation and have a department of diagnosticians behind them. Start with medical schools - they are most interested in research.

Please keep us informed. And welcome to TIMS.

Welcome Eyal,


Congrats!: If you have got one neurologist looking into the matter very seriously ... and went to Ferrara...and another neurologist, head of MS center...believes in CCSVI deeply... believe me: you are very lucky. IMHO this is probably the most important thing you could have.

Best wishes.

Pepe.

Right! I'd send mails to the bigger universities and especially the radiologists and the vascular surgeons and angios. And as the Israeli neurologists seem to be much more open-minded than the ones in Germany I guess the odds are very good that you'll succeed.

Eyal,

Mah nish ma?

Thank you for that posting. Please keep us all informed as to any progress. I am in London and there is nothing happening in England regarding CCSVI except a lot of "no". I have a very progressive doctor and even he told me to go away.

I would go anywhere to have this procedure done - having just fought off cancer I do not want to waste any more of life with chronic fatigue I get as one of my symptoms.

Stay well. Keep smiling - it makes everyone else wonder what you are up to!!!!!!!

Hi Shoshana

I read your posting with great interest but can you please explain something - are you saying that treatment is now available in Israel?

I would be very interested if it is.

Many thanks

Please keep us posted...
I live in Chile, though I lived in Israel for 4 years and would be willing to have the CCSVI procedure done there, cause it's not here yet.
I was diagnosed TOS upon having my veins and artheries checked. I'm eager to have the procedure done!!!!!!
If you have those Drs. in Israel that support the CCSVI procedure... I will appreciate it if you could post them.

unfortunately the powers that be here in the free world (keep on rockin) are doing their best to prevent us from even *paying* for the testing and surgery we need. we know the facts, and this looks here like suppression of them for the sake of money and power. it will be ironic if i have to travel to the country that brought us Copaxone to get what i need. once more, Israel shows us the way

hope you have great success, and that your treatment brings you more releif than you expect. i had my dx the same month as you. still hoping
