At The Chiari Care Center at The Medical Center of Aurora, our specialists treat some of the most rare neurological diseases, including Chiari l Malformation (CM-I) (pronounced kee-ar'-ee), syringomyelia and tethered cord syndrome.
Our neurosurgeon and other neurohealth professionals handle all aspects of care from evaluation and diagnosis, to treatment and follow up. Both non-surgical and surgical treatment options are considered.
Depending on the individual case, minimally invasive surgical procedures such as decompression surgery and treatment for tethered spinal cord will be used, if appropriate.
