Desperate Need of NS
I am writing because I am trying to find a dependable NS. I was going to go to the Cleveland Clinc and see Dr. Mark Lucino but the Clinic does not take out of state Medicaid any longer. I am having extreme issues and need an MRI soon as Possible I live in Indiana...and really don't trust any Doc's around here...Any Suggestions..anyone know of a specialist in the Chicago area?

Thank you, I am going to check the list out and hopefully find someone that I trust, you know this is our life and I want a NS that completely understands my condition. And what are the clinical trials never heard of it?

  There is a group of Drs that do surgery and record the results as a way to get data...many that can not afford to get to a Chiari specialist go this route as it is fully paid for...if u r accepted into the trial..they may monitor u for some time afterward....they may want someone with Chiari and syringomyelia, or with EDS...to see what the effects of certain dura patches are etc.....

  It is a well respected Chiari Dr that heads this up in MD.....
