My son, 13 years old, was just diagnosed with Chiari malformation. Looking for a pediatric neurosurgeon in the Baton Rouge or New Orleans area. Does anyone have a doctor the recommend?

Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum,

We do not refer or recommend Drs...BUT we have a list of Drs other members have been to, treated by and liked, we share the list to make it easier for you to research Drs in your area if there are any we know of.Again, this is not a referral or endorsement of those listed it is just a means to help you research Drs in your area. Please keep in mind many of us do travel out of state to get to a true Chiari specialist as that is KEY in getting proper care.

May I ask what symptoms your son has had, that he was tested? ANd what testing was done? MRI's of what area's other than the cervical spine? Was a CINE MRI done? ANy related conditions ruled out?

Just know you are not alone.
