Surgeon in Dallas?

Can anyone recomend a surgeon in Dallas?
My pain leval and headaches are not that bad, just often and I guess increasing.
My main problem is my balance and eyesight. The erratic eye movements and never knowing from one minute to the next if I will be able to read or walk is the biggest problem. I can not do my work like this.

Does anyone know of someone with experience???

The one specialist I am familiar with...in talking to only....is Dr. John Oro...in CO....Dr Oro is well known and highly regarded in the chiari community.
I did find in an old thread the following dr....I know nothing at all about him. It can be difficult to locate a specialist near u.

Search online for Dr. George, Austin Texas ....again this is not a reccommendation....just a name I found...please research and find the dr right for u.

I hope u continue to post here, it's a grat place for support!

Good luck

Dr. Stephen Fletcher is in Houston, TX.  I know that he is very knowledgeable about Chiari.  Other than that, I can't say much, but wanted to pass the name along.

Check out the conquer chiari . org website to see more info on him.

I hope that you are able to find a good physician.
