Chiari Doctor list

I've seen references to doctors that can diagnose and treat Chiari, but haven't found it on this site yet. Can someone point me in the right direction. We are in Maryland and I'm convinced my wife has a Craniocervical Instability that leads to chiari malformation (type 1) which is causing POTS symptoms. We are in Maryland

  Hi Bob and welcome to the Chiari forum.

MedHelp is undergoing changes to the format and since the start of these changes the Drs list is not available....BUT I can post a list for the area you are in.....

CCI does not lead to Chiari but Ehlers-Danlos can lead to CCI.....Chiari is the malformation of the skull....which happens in utero.

The Drs list is not a referral nor an endorsement for those listed...it is meant to be used as a tool to research Drs.

In addition to the list I will post below I will add the name of a Dr that DX'd Ehlers-Danlos - Dr Claire Fracamano, Baltimore, MD
