Discussion about finding a neurological Surgeon and facility for MDV surgery

I am a new member to this forum and have had GPN for over a year now.

I am in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and need to know if there is a neurological surgeon and a facility that can perform the MVD surgery procedure?

If not, then can someone tell me of a qualified surgeon and a facility in the TEXAS area (ie Houston, Austin or San Antonio).

Thanks in advance for the help!

Drugs were not a cure and they were beginning to affect my quality of life and activity level. We considered going to the U of Pennsylvania where the technique was perfected, but after visiting w/ Dr. Krisht and checking his credentials, we knew he was the one. If you have any other questions or need more info, please don’t hesitate to ask…

Sorry! Had kind of a glitch in the middle of my reply. Hope you can make sense of it…
