Avatar f tn Dr. Zamboni is the Italian researcher that is doing the ongoing research and clinical trials called the "Liberation Treatment/Procedure". I don't think he will be working out of Canada. What I understood from past readings is that he will be working with Dr's in both US and Canada to gather data and test MS patients to see if their veins are blocked. The doctor I heard that will jump on board to help Dr. Zamboni with his research is a Neurologist in Hamilton, ON.

Avatar f tn To answer your question, many doctors will not perform the "liberation treatment" because it is unethical to charge a patient for a experimental procedure. There is no safety protocol, the research is in its infancy and not every pt who hass MS does not have to have the disorder dubbed CCSVI. Insurance companies are being bill fraudently for this tx! There is no cpt code to justify having angioplasty for the treatment of MS.
