I have just been diagnosed with Chiari 1, and need to find a specialist in my area. I have been suffering for 6 years and am relieved to finally know why I am in so much pain. It took 3 MRI's, brain angiogram and 3 spinal taps to get here. I would also like to get more information on what the surgeries and their recovery times are. I am in Salt Lake City, Utah.
