Dear Heather,
We are from Canada and my boy who has moyamoya had his surgeries at the Alberta Children's Hospital in Calgary. Dr. Mark Hamilton has previous experience with moyamoya.
I cannot help you with procedures with getting treatment in the States but I thought I should tell you about treatment available here in Canada.
How old is your daughter? My son was 6 when he was 1st diagnosed. He is now amost 9 and is doing well thanks to EDAS procedures on both sides. Please feel free to contact me for any info!
All the best!
Gazou
