I am looking into having surgery done
I was diagnosed with Chiari 1 malformation in August 2012. My cerebellar tonsils extend approximately 7-8 mm below the foramen magnum. Everything else looks normal.
I am looking at getting a second MRI done because it has been almost 3 years and to my knowledge, things can change and I have had increasingly bad headaches over the past few months. I am looking into having surgery done. I am pretty set on the idea because of all the successful surgeries I have heard about and my headaches seem to be getting worse.
Please advise me on some good doctors in NYC that I can see, so that I don't have to sift through the many that don't know what they are talking about.
This would be very very helpful.
