sometimes there is a reason that drs do not want to do specific procedures,based on the facts of tests that they have run,,this may be the case with your brother. This site is NOT intended to diagnose,or treat anyones diseases,just offer suggestions,,,and without the full batter of tests in from of ANY of us, we do NOT know what is best for your brother. Maybe asking your brothers dr why this procedure woudnt be good for him would be the best bet,,,,,,you might be surprised to find a good solid answer,,,,,,,,i know that your frustrated but please,,,,,ask the dr more question. good luck
