Seattle Children’s Hospital: Chiari Malformations Roundtable
SEATTLE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL - SEATTLE, WA - NOVEMBER 6, 2019
After a brief introduction of the Bobby Jones Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation by Executive Director, Dorothy Poppe
(6:05-31:44), Dr. Richard Ellenbogen
leads an excellent discussion on Chiari malformations
Dr. Ellenbogen beings by talking about the research that has been done in Chiari malformation and the resources available to patients and families who do not want to be alone.
Afterwards, he leads a great discussion on all different topics and gives tips and tricks for patients who are (or are not!) considering Chiari decompression and other surgeries. For example, did you know that for Chiari decompressions, there are usually two neurosurgeons in the operating room?
He even takes questions from real patients and parents of pediatric patients and answers them in real-time!
This presentation was given at the November 2019 meeting at Seattle Children's Hospital in Seattle, WA. (2019)
