My sister met an NS named Dr. Nick Dea @ Vancouver General Hospital. He looked so young and i asked how old he is. He is only 30 years old. I am not sure if i should let my sister get the Chiari decompression surgery from this young doctor. Does anybody know Chiary Specialist in vancouver area?
We do have a list of Drs that members have been to in Canada......it is not a referral but a means to use the list to research Drs. in ur area.
Keep in mind u may have to travel or ur sister may have to travel to get to a well experienced Dr for this condition.
Make sure they r looking to see if she has a CSF obstruction, and ne other related conditions b4 she even considers surgery as they can affect how she feels and heals post op.
