Default Re:AVM Left Arm - Seeking Doctor

This is my first time in the site, but have AVM left hand, diagnosed in 1986 with the only MRI in Colorado was at CU Med Center - no one wanted any part of surgery due to probability of amputation. I was fortunate enough that local physicians found Harry Buncke, MD (at that time the best "hand-man" in the world) at Davies Hospital in San Francisco. The Buncke Clinic has its own site and while I'm not sure how much surgery he still does, 2 of his sons trained with him. By the way...after 9 surgeries (it's been 10 years since the last) - still have the hand, all the fingers and they all work well. -
