Jim, could you please clarify for me "If you don't have a qualified surgeon near you". Does that mean that surgeons from various locations around the country will be trained in the surgical procedure for this therapy and will be available for compassionate use at the same time as the surgeons at the centers you mentioned? Also, if that's the case, what about the therapists? Will they be trained and available for compassionate use outside the listed centers as well? Or, is a trip to the east coast a necessity to participate in the therapy under the compassionate use clause?
Thank you.
