My daughter had her 1st treatment (Dr Wood thinks it will take 4 treatments total). It went very well, her PWS is very small but she received a general anesthia through a mask only and was only "under" for about 5 minutes. They even let my husband hold her while they gave her the mask and until she was asleep. I have only heard very good things about Gillette Children;s Hospital and because it is a children's hospital, all the anesthiologists ONLY work with children - we really liked that fact as well.
We really like Dr Wood, did you check out that article he wrote? He uses the Candela laser with the Dynamic Cooling Device. From all my research this is the best possible laser for PWS's available.
Hope that helps, he was also very good with our insurance company as they are now going to cover the procedures.
