We offer advanced diagnostic evaluations, including MRI imaging with dynamic flow and pulsatility analysis, and the full spectrum of Chiari decompression surgical approaches.
Our expertise encompasses spinal dysplasia, spinal deformity, cervical instability and atlantoaxial instability. As the principal site for the Park-Reeves Syringomyelia Research Consortium, we also have extensive experience in the management of Chiari associated with syringomyelia and hydromyelia.
