I had my Liberation procedure back on July 14th,2011 and I feel great. I had the best care and the nicest DR. Dr Arata was very informative before and after the surgery. I am so glad I to be able to be free and mobile without pain. I am thankful for everyday that I feel like this. However I live by the motto " I may have MS but MS doesn't have me..
I cant say enough about dr arata and his staff. They are absolutely amazing. I hade the procedure done end of may 2013. It was a great experience. I feel great now. Thanks to all the staff at synergy and dr arata. Will be seeing you all again
I had the angioplasty done with Arata, I immediately felt the warmth return to my hands and feet, my balance continues to improve. Very good experience throughout the entire visit. Don't wait to come in! :)
I saw my neurologist on June 18. He of course wouldn't even discuss my CCSVI treatment with me and said not one word about it, but he DID say my secondary-progressive MS is now STABLE!! Secondary-progressive MS does NOT stabilize! What has stabilized is my dysautonomia - or rather it has now gone away! All of my improvements happened miraculously, dramatically, and most almost immediately after, or should I say during, my TVAM treatment! Thank you for this life-restoring treatment!
MY “LIBERATION” TREATMENT FOR CHRONIC CEREBRAL SPINAL VENOUS INSUFFICIENCY ( CCSVI ) MAY 24, 2020 RESULTS
RONALD CALVERT age 77 Multiple Sclerosis 50 + years.
Immediately: Regained feeling in hands and feet after 40+ years of
numbness and no feeling!
Ability to swallow normally. RESTORED!
Next few hours: My ice cold feet and legs became warm and my purple feet
Cognitive Fog. GONE!
Significantly more core body strength, stamina and balance!
One week: No longer heat intolerant. Went to a car show in 96 degree sun
for 3.5 hours and had no loss of core body strength.
Mild double vision of 40+ years. GONE!
Significant improvement in my ability to write legible!
Probably due to the cog-fog and loss of balance, my driving
ability had deteriorated over the past few years to the point that my
wife was doing most of the driving. A week after returning from
Costa Mesa, CA I drove from Montana to Seattle WA & have been
in the drivers seat ever since. I’M BACK!
I was constantly falling asleep during the day. I now sleep 6 to 8
hrs a night & never nod off or sleep during the day!
This is 12 improvements I never dreamed I would ever recover.
THANK YOU DR HARRIS & DR ZAMBONI.
JULY 16, 2020 UPDATE
I HAVE MAINTAIND ALL OF THE GAINS AND IMPROVEMENTS LISTED ABOVE AND I AM LOVING LIFE.
ANOTHER GREAT PLUS HAS DEVELOPED IN THE PAST SIX MONTHS. I NOW HAVE NEAR NORMAL BOWEL CONTROL AFTER YEARS OF VERY LITTLE CONTROL.
NOTE OF INTEREST: IN MY PRE PROCEDURE INTERVIEW, DR. HARRIS ASKED ME WHAT I WAS EXPECTING OUT OF THE TREATMENT. MY REPLY, “ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, I’M JUST HOPPING FOR SOME IMPROVEMENTS IN TRANSFERRING AND STOPPING THE PROGRESSION. I’M NO FOOL, 48 YEARS OF MS HAS LEFT A LOT OF RESIDUAL DAMAGE THAT IS UNFIXABLE.” WELL, I WAS RIGHT AND I WAS WRONG, BUT I KNOW THE PROGRESSION WAS STOPPED 25 MONTHS AGO AND I NOW REFER TO MY SELF AS POST MS.
Still seeing improvements, after having the CCSVI for Secondary Progressive MS on May 9/2012. Great people! So glad I went with this Clinic. What is interesting is that people around me see improvements before I notice them in some instances! Thanks again!
Hello to Dr.Arata, Dr Hewlett and the wonderful Staff At Synergy..You were Awesome...I would recommend anyone wanting to have this procedure done to make arrangments with this very knowledgeable group of medical stafff...You are treated like a queen....They sure made this long trip from Newfoundland much easier to deal with and after the procedure I am still feeling wonderful...Thank you all :) :) :)
To Dr. Arata and your wonderful staff - Its been a month today since the procedure and I am still feeling great..Thank you so much and I Hope all Ms patients gets to come to you for this procedure and leave feeling the way I do..Thank You.
I had the ccsvi treatment last Wednesday, and I am excited to say it had better results then I had hoped. The brain fog is gone and I can speak more clearly. It is easier for me to read text as it scrolls across tv screens. I can feel my feet and have rbeen out of my wheel chair, walking with assistance, but walking for the first time in years. My legs no longer feel like they weigh 1,000 pounds.
I had mine done Tuesday and feel fantastic! Thank you Dr. Arata and whole staff! You are awesome ! Happy Valentines Day too!?
Last October I went to Synergy as a caregiver for a young woman who was having the procedure along were also two other ladies that traveled with us to have the procedure done. Before travelling there I had met so many people who had the procedure done not one person had not had positive results. But to be there and witness the instant relief of some of the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis was astounding. It just has made me more determined to make sure the right to this procedure should be available in Canada . But until we can win that battle I encourage everyone with neurological disorders to investigate this procedure so you may live a better quality of life. I have the highest respect for Dr Arata and Dr Hewett and the Synergy Team , God Bless you for being here!
There's only 1 way to describe what Dr. Arata & his staff have done for me. As a severe MS sufferer of 17 yrs.....we are never able to look toward tomorrow.......always just fighting to make it through the day we are in......there was never a future! Only today! I had my procedure last thurs. and in a FB post I caught myself making this statement......."can't wait to see what the future has in store for me???" And once I realized what I just said.....I broke down in tears......I feel so different and its all so new to me, very emotional......could never have expected such an incredible outcome.....Thank you all for bringing hope and a future back into my life!!!!! If anyone would like to know about my recent experience at Synergy....please feel free to contact me on FB....I'd love to tell you about it :) God bless you all! Thank you!
*The actual benefits that individual patients experience from treatment can vary from patient to patient. This disparity is based on a number of factors that are often times uncontrollable. While most patients have experienced substantial relief, some patients describe symptom relief of a moderate degree. A small percentage who have undergone treatment have experienced minimal or no relief at all. While we make every effort to provide treatment that will improve symptoms to the greatest degree possible, there is no guarantee that treatment will provide symptom relief.
