Chiari Grand Rapids Michigan

Newly diagnosed with Chiari 1…5mm…anyone know a reputable neurosurgeon in the area? I have 2 MRI and 1 CT


I was referred to Michigan Head and Spine Institute, Dr. Holly Gilmer thru Beaumont Hospital, she specializes in Chiari Malformation in adults and children… I could not go to her as insurance conflicts and scheduling conflicts came up… haven’t heard anything but positive stuff about her! Hope this helps, you can find all her info right on google also!

Dr. Luders at St. Mary’s in Grand Rapids did my surgery in 2013, he was awesome. He explains everything very well, his staff is incredible, and the surgery went very well. Call his office.
