Good luck! i have heard many good things about him. I had my surgery there and from talking to the nurses, chiari and chiari related surgeries are not uncommon there, (a few nurses told me they see roughly 20-25 decompressions there a week) and most of the regular  nurses knew more about chiari and the things we go through not getting proper help, than my primary doctor did.. I hope this makes you feel better about going there.. I loved it... and from what I hear Dr Weingart is a Chiari Specialist

it wasn't a good day and I'm pretty upset. I'll write about it tomorrow cause today was a long day. Also if weingart is a specialist on chiari he ceartainly has an intresting veiw on it "once u have had the decompression ur fixed"  his words not mine.

Hey Molly sorry you had a bad day.  I was told that by a NS that does some surgeries but he isnt a specialist.  He has been practicing 16 years and has only done about 100 surgeries.  Thats like 6 a year.  100 may have been a nice round number for him to pull out of his hat too!  

Anyway, you arent alone with the stress of trying to find treatment with this illness.  I hope tomorrow is a better day!

HI Molly...sorry I missed ur post on the visit...I am not feeling well....and was MIA all day yesterday....

There r way too many drs NS that feel like that, once u have surgery u r fixed or cured...and we know that is not right....

I pray he handles ur shunt diff...and u r able to move forward and feel better soon.
