I am from the new york area and i had a leak from an epidural then had 3 blood patches. one of the blood patches created another hole( although i did not know it at the time). I had surgery with dr. schievink even though no scans showed my leak and he found both leaks and fixed them! I am now 9 months post op and have my life back! if you have any other questions just let me know
My husband did 3 blood patches and didn't work either. How easy is it to see Dr. Wouter Schievink? Do I need referral from my current doctor? How long is the waiting time? Thank you so much if you can answer my question and I may have more questions about how to see him.
