Dr. Edison McDaniels
Specializes in Neurosurgery
Vague question: Well, why? If you have a condition you think warrants it, discuss the situation w/ your doc & seek a referral to a center of expertise on the subject. There are lots of research protocols out there, but patients rarely identify themselves. The need is generally recognized by their doc, who makes the appropriate referral. Hope this was helpful & good luck.
