Here's the updated member recommended doctors list.
A few things to remember. First, these are member recommendations. Which means these doctors may not be Chiari specialists, but they were recommended because the member felt they had a positive outcome at the time they posted the recommendation. It's up to YOU to decide if this doctor will work for you, and to do your own research.
Second, get multiple opinions if possible. The primary treatment for a Chiari Malformation and/or Syringomyelia is surgery. The success rate for this surgery is not ideal, and only 60% of patients feel the surgery is a success at the two year mark. Your chances improve by seeing a specialist.
Third, neurologists typically prescribe medications for migraines, which are usually not effective for Chiari patients. If you have a neurologist who is thorough, attentive, and wants to get to the root of your symptoms, to include referral to a neurosurgeon, PLEASE post them here. Finding a Chiari neurologist is difficult for many, and your recommendation can help people greatly.
Fourth, if you have a great doctor, please post their name and location here. We are looking for doctors in all specialties who are knowledgeable about Chiari.
And last, we can't have negative reviews of a doctor posted here, per site rules.
Please let me know about any mistakes, broken web links, or if a doctor is retired or no longer practicing by adding a comment to this discussion.
