What exactly is CCSVI treatment?
- CCSVI or CCVI is a term coined by Dr Zamboni used to define the inability of the body’s network of veins located in the head and neck to improve blood flow through the central nervous system—composed of the neck and brain—owing to getting blocked or narrowed.
- CCSVI and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) are believed to be interlinked.
- The procedures that form the core of CCSVI liberation treatment are endovascular surgery and interventional neuro-radiology.
Am I a candidate for it?
- Suffering from MS does not necessarily make you a candidate for CCSVI treatment.

- Also our doctors would need your medical questionnaire to decide on your candidacy.
How much is the average length of hospital stay?
About three nights.
