Re: Looking for advice and help!!!

Don't know if your insurance will pay for Dr. Park if there is someone close to where you live that does SDR. We read the fine print of our insurance policy and were able to get our insurance to pay for a lot of the surgery. But now, they offer SDR in our town; so we probably couldn't get our insurance to cover it if we'd waited til now to do it.
Maybe you'll find some kind of loophole in your insurance that will allow you to have it done in St. Louis. We were interested in him, because at the time, he was the only one doing the less invasive type of surgical procedure. Not sure if there are others are doing it now, too. Best of luck to you. There are several detailed posts about Dr. Parks and SDR on this site that may help you to find out more about it.

My daughter has similar symptoms. We found xanaflex reduced her tonal spasticity better than baclofen and lasts longer than botox.
