Re: rhizotomy

Hi--Just out of curiosity are you talking about the surgery being done by Dr. Park? I'm asking because the word rhzhotomy and st. louis sent off bells to me. I live in FL as well. Trying to find a surgeon is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Anyway I understand about the Medicaid issue because I'm going through that myself. Not saying this would work--but possibly getting a specialist (who knows what they are doing) that will say and document that this surgery is medically necessary might work. No guarentees.
