I am 22 years old with PWS. I have done laser treatment for about 14 years off and on. Laser treatment worked in some areas of my PWS, but others are to deep and are not phased by laser treatment. That is why I am seeing Dr. Waner in NY to have get it completely removed woth surgery and am also going to continue lasers treatment.
