Yes, the different types of surgeries do different things and none of them are right for everyone. Just make sure you have researched each type and decide which one is best for you.
I had already had permanent damage from a stroke so I decided the benefits from the "direct" method was what I needed at my age and my situation which is why I went with the STA-MCA and Dr. Steinberg.
There isn't a whole lot of information out there about Moyamoya and the different surgeries, but be informed about it as much as you can so you can make the right decision in your case! And remember, YOU AREN'T ALONE!
Please keep us informed on how you're doing!
