Reply to "Adhesion surgery for chronic obstructions"

I am going to assume there are similarities but clear passage may be a bit more intense and specialized, requiring more training etc.  I think it is the only one that has been validated as successful specifically for recurring small bowel obstructions   by major peer reviewed studies published in major mainstream medical journals, which is why and how insurance can be forced to cover it.  It appears there are less than 10 people in the world  currently certified to do it.  There seem to be no complaints or bad outcomes (ie outcomes where harm was done) as far as I can find (and I have searched hard and long), so from my point of view, the worst that can happen is it wont help, but there appears to be a good chance it will help. Certainly seems worth doing before resorting to surgery. Now that I know about it, I cant imagine getting surgery without trying this first.  Surgery is no fun and at least for me, highly likely to be a revolving door resulting in new adhesions a few years after the surgery that removed the current adhesions. It is like there is no other choice, so....
