Chiari Malformation

Call for an Appointment 855-855-6484

Duke experts identify and treat Chiari malformations to help manage symptoms and avoid their progression. Chiari malformations -- when brain tissue extends into the spinal canal -- may be diagnosed at any age, from infancy (sometimes even before birth) through adulthood. Our pediatric and adult neurosurgeons collaborate with specialists throughout Duke to care for people with Chiari malformations, especially if you or your child have other associated medical conditions.
