yesterday. The Doc was upset by Donalds emotional state he looked at Donald and sait what are YOU willing to do. I told him about Dr Mathews (in texas) a converstion and the paper I got from the office. He pulled out a letter from a Chronic Cluster Suffer that had the surgery a year ago. The man came to his office after a year and just came in to thank Dr Walker because he sent him there he has been cluster free for 1 Year. I talked with the doc about clinical studies and he says some are going on but didn't say where. I talked with him about the efficacy of the surgery. The info I got from Mathews office was kinda outdated to me (1988.) He say that is probably the most recent studies done. But he swears that Dr Mathews has a special technique that has perfected the surgery. Not all neurosurgeons do this and has been very successful with it. We too are pushed in that direction again.
