Now there is a Hospital in Warsaw with world class standard http://www.medicover.com/plpl/szpital/wycieczka/ . I ask everybody to take a 3D virtual tour of the Medicover Hospital (you can see what a real entrance means, what a two-bedroom means, and so forth). A 4 hours operation with the diagnostic help of the IVUS apparatus costs the same for Polish and for foreign citizens. And they ask even less than the previously mentioned “hospitals” are asking for a 1-hour angioplastic operation from a foreigner. And please take into consideration that the one-time used catheter with ultrasound vision and 5 paramedics have also their cost. In Medicover Hospital the cost of this operation is for everybody 22.000 Polish Zloty, which is currently about 5.300 Euro http://www.medicover.com/plen/hospital/ ... ackage.htm .
We had no other choice and we were shamelessly exploited. I can guarantee now, that I can be proud of myself, as I sent the scientific material already in 2010 to the direction of Medicover Hospital and the Scientific Committee of the Hospital took the decision – after a discussion with Dr. Schelling – to perform CCSVI operations. The medical director at that time – doz. Kielar – asked the Ethical Medical Commission for approval of CCSVI operations, but this was not needed at all, since I had already this written approval from the Ministry of Health.
I would hope that the doctors at Medicover will do so as well.
It is difficult to weigh our options between one clinic and another, when cost and experience and prior patient outcomes must all be considered. Euromedic has been treating CCSVI since 2009.
Either way we patients need to do our homework, now more than ever.

Dr. Dake's first patients paper is finally published, now three years later. The doctors are learning more each year, and treatment has changed since the beginning. But it is only through collaboration at events like ISNVD or peer-reviewed journals that this is ever going to change MS. And bad-mouthing the pioneer doctors just isn't helping.

I sympathise with your position but my aim is to help pwMS to choose safe therapy for CCSVI, rather than report clinics. You mention a clinic that uses catheter venograms and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) for the CCSVI procedure. Would you please check all this infomation by questioning with the clinic/doctor and asking for references. Then post your findings under the thread - GOLD STANDARD TOOLS:

I am amazed by your report as it is a breach of European law to charge different prices for the same procedure to people from the European Union. It is allowed to charge for extra services (such as local help and translation). Have you reported this to the Polish authorities ?
