Chiari Specialists in the Northern Virginia area?

Hi,

I was wondering if there were any specific Chiari Specialists related definitely with Chiari in the Northern Virginia area?  I have a Neurologist but want to see someone who specializes directly with Chiari as well as Syrinx/Syringomyelia.

Thanks,
Stephanie

  Hi...I am not sure, and would suggest u take a look at out list and do some research....if u r in the Wash, DC area...u may want to try Dr Henderson...or in NC a Dr Rosner....if they r close to the part of VA u r in or can travel to.

Many of us do have to travel to get to the right dr.

Thanks Selma,

I know about Dr. Henderson I just know that he doesn't take insurance.  Maybe I'll have to take a trip to see him for a consult.  

If anyone else knows of any Chiari specialists in this area, please feel free to post.

Thanks so much,
Stephanie

  Most chiari NS's do not work with ins....the NL and hospital staff generally do...and if u talk to his staff u may find u can work out payments.

But, many NS's do not so that they do not have the ins companies dictating if and when they can do surgery.
