Default Re:Laser treatment - Effects of PWS and KT

Hi Jerry,

I'm not certain if I'm clear about your question, but i'll try to answer it. there are rare occassions when laser tx is not recommended on some patients with kts. most of the time the most contraindicated procedure has to do with treating the associated varicouse veins.(you would not want that done if you have certain venous systems that are missing) It is best to check with a doctor who is an expert in KTSW before seeking any type of treatment. In general laser tx on a limb pws does not improve the kts.

the top expert in kts is patricia burrows in boston, mass. i believe you can find her info on this site or the web.....email and phone. i have heard many patients contacting her via email/phone if they live far away.
