Response from Dr. Conway
All of these procedures can be quite effective in the right hands. It is somewhat dependent on the experience of the doc who is doing it. The best advice I could give you is to ask the specific doctor who will be doing the procedure on you to show you results he/she has obtained in people who had a similar condition to yours. This will also give you a "reality check" of what you can expect from the procedure.
