I have an AVM in the palm of my hand. Do any of you good folk know any surgeons in Australia who would have experience with removing AVMs from extremities and would be prepared to walk me through the operation? I am based in Hobart, Tasmania and both of the vascular surgeons that I have spoken to have been recticent to perform any operation. I feel that this has severely limited what I can do in life (with respect to exercise and playing musical instruments) and I would like to take steps to rectify it. Thank you.
