Apr 7th 2006 12:21PM TO HEIDI LEWIS: I'm so sorry to hear about your medical problems. I do not know any specific surgeons, but have you contacted the department of neurosurgery at Baylor or the University of Texas in Houston? The medical center there is great. If you can afford the travel, I recommend Mayo Clinic. You dod not need a referral, just call and make an appointment. Other than that, try the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, OK. Good luck!
