Attention liver met friends

Postby skimom » Tue Feb 06, 2024 4:37 pm

I’m kind of excited! It may not work out for me but hopefully will for lots of you. I’m sure you have heard because I know I did read some posts on here about it but the histotripsy machine is really here and being added to more hospitals!

I am being considered for it at Swedish Hospital in Seattle as there are only 2 on the west coast so far but over east appears to be many.

I’ll update if I am able to get it done and would love to hear if any of you have already done it.

Blessings to you all
