Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum.

We do have a list of specialists that u will want to review and research the drs closest to u....the list was compiled by the members here, of the names of their drs and only if they liked them...but it is not intended as a referral...u do need to do research on the dr to find the right one for u,....so u may need to travel as the list is not all inclusive of all chiari drs....but, u also want to be sure u do not go with a NS that does chiari surgeries....as they r not experienced enuff to handle all the issues u may have.

Surgery is also not a cure or a fix...once u have chiari u will always have it...and u may always have symptoms, just not as much as b4 surgery.

Surgery is a means to slow progression and open CSF flow.....
