If you don't get any replies, you can go to the Members area, then Advanced search, and put in the city/country. There are 23 members in Melbourne. I didn't look in India.
If it's not a massive number, you could read the profiles of these people and might find some results.
Thnk you for the reply Ron as u said I joined the ausee group and find few frnds there to get some info. Thanks again have a good day
The best neurosurgeon for this is PROF.MICHAEL MORGAN at Macquarie University Hospital in Sydney.
He is the best there is in Australia if not worldwide.
Good Luck,I know you will be in good hands.
Quite a few of us Aussies on here have had our arms removed by Professor Michael Morgan. He's a Macquarie University in Sydney and is absolutely brilliant. Here's his webpage, which links to contact details: http://www.avmsurgeon.com/_index.php .
Prof removed my occipital avm in 2001 - I'd been told by neurosurgeons here in Brissy that my avm was inoperable - and the side effects from the surgery have been very minor.
Contact the Neurosurgical staff at The University of Western Ontario's University Hospital. They will know where to direct you to; my life was saved there, in a 14-hour craniotomy, in 1987. They will know the best, closest place. I know that, in Japan, a Dr. Suzuki was one of the people under whom the man who saved me studied under; Dr. Suzuki is retired, however.
How are you now? I am due for an emoblisation and Royal Melbourne hospital and wondering if you have any feedback regarding who advised to do so?
