MRI guded ultrasound treatment for PD

Recommended Posts

Well, Hell.......there are NO treatment center here in the USA!!?? Then again, it's not an "approved" treatment here yet.

 

Sounds pretty cool, tho. I guess that if it proves to be truly life changing, others will join in and offer similar treatments

Ha!

It is a start-up from Haifa and my MDS is evolved )

They can help only with tremor (not rigidity) and only 1 side - but still it is a great help for many PD patients

That was quick...both the Western and Sunnybrook Health Research contacted me after sending in my inquiry.

 

I don't meet the criteria which is a good thing!

 

Not on Sinemet and my tremor is not severe and disbilitating.

 

Also they do not finance accommodations nor travel....it's expensive for out of Province patients....

 

However I'm very impressed with what I've read and what they have accomplished to date..something to watch out for in the future right now it's still trail...

 

Anybody living in Toronto should look into it...
