How are you? Management of serious conditions such as mrsa/bone infection may be composed by a team of specialists which may include infectious disease specialist, internist, orthopedic surgeon and other consultants depending on the presence of co-morbid conditions. Take care and regards.
Thanks for your reply - it explains why my friend has had several different doctors looking at him . My wife and I would like to help and I thought maybe paying for a top specialist would be better than him being seen by lots of doctors who I was getting the impression didn't know what to do !
However as you point out several areas of expertise are needed, particularly as in Tony's case he has suffered from Crohns disease for many years.
Thanks again for your help
