Sphinctor of Oddi

I have a diagnosis of SOD. I live in Atlanta and I am researching Doctors. Can anyone give me advice on whh they would recommend between, Dr. Stuart Sherman, Dr. Glen Lehman both in Indiana or Dr. Cotton at MUSC.

I have already had an ERCP and the sphincter has been cut.

Thank you so much for any advice you can offer.

Lacampo, I can't comment on MUSC, but I have an acquaintance who was treated at Indiana by the individuals you mentioned and she is doing well after SOD difficulties. Due to the problems encountered, she had to undergo a procedure similar to a modified Whipple. Surgery and recovery were both difficult but overall she's doing quite well. The docs in Indiana tried hard to avoid surgery, but it unfortunately couldn't be avoided.
