My 14 year old son has been recently diagnosed with Chiari one with the cerebellar tonsils extending through the foramen magnum by 2.5 cm with a syringomyelia. He has had 4 seizures in a month and a half - the 1st one being the reason he was diagnosed (MRI in the ER), one a week ago but 2 happened today :( We were already on the list for decompression surgery at the end of the school year since our surgeon said this was not an emergency (my son had only had the original seizure when we talked to the surgeon 2 week ago). In looking over your list I don't see any neurosurgeons (pediatric) in NM. We are seeing Dr. Marchand at UNM (University of NM), who we understand has over 38 years of experience in Chiari. Does anyone have any information, good or bad, for us?
