I have an appointment/consult with Dr. Alexander Khalessi, a neurosurgeon, at UCSD today for my AVM in my left temporalis muscle. I also plan on getting a second opinion from Dr. Suen (who is very hard to get a hold of) and possibly Dr. Yakes.
I was wondering what kinds of experiences my fellow face and neck AVMrs have had with neurosurgeons? Have any of you received treatment from a neurosurgeon? What kinds of diagnosis or options did they provide to you?
This is my second extracranial AVM. My first one was removed from my neck in 2002.
I appreciate any and all of the feedback that anyone can provide.
