Re: Chiari doctors
Aug 28, 2008
Hi Vicki~

I'm sorry to hear your son is having to deal with Chiari. Of course, my 1st recommendation would be The Chiari Instiute (TCI) in New York. They come highly recomended and treat children as well as adults. Traveling definately shouldn't be a 1st priority. Finding an Experienced Chiari specialist is.

There is a list of Dr's who treat Chiari and I'll post them here for you. The list at the top with an * indicates a doctor that has been recommended by group members or has expertise in the Chiari field. Then below is Drs listed by state.

But I want to say wherever you go, I wish your son the best!!

Good Luck to your family!!
