Italian vascular surgeon Dr. Paolo Zamboni was in Hamilton on February 8th 2010!!
Dr. Zamboni urged doctors to be more open to his ideas during a conference at St. Joseph's Hospital -- his first North American appearance since his theory of "chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency" gained worldwide attention in the fall.
The cost to fund a trial of similar research as that of Dr. Zamboni, at St Joseph's, is estimated to be $500,000. So far they have raised $50,000 with the MS Society expected to donate $100,000.
Charity Intelligence Canada, has released a report recommending that Canadians direct their MS donations to this initiative. Read the report here and please give!!
I am so excited !! I'm going to pester my doctor to try and get me into the trials when they start. I know that I have restricted blood flow in my neck veins. That was confirmed by an ultra sound last year. I will do anything I can to be a part of this.
Stay tuned for updates !!!!
Right now it's time to watch the opening games of the Vancouver Winter Olympics.
