Who Is The Leading Irish Expert On Blood Disorders?

Blood platelett count dips to as low as one (1) every 1-2 months, every other month it is down to 10 - 13. Medical intervention brings it back up in two days to 500 +. This has been going on for two years and the consultant appears to have run out of ideas. The only solution is a spleenectomy. Before such drastic action , a second opinion is being sought from whoever the leading expert is.

Have they done bone marrow studies? These can be more revealing than peripheral smears in platelet disorders that follow unusual courses.
