Dr. Michael Chan, neurosurgeon at Mercy Hospital (Dignity Health System) in Sacramento, CA, gives an excellent "Chiari 101" lecture. Learn how Chiari malformation is diagnosed and treated in patients and the common surgical treatment methods-- specifically, posterior fossa decompression, sometimes simply called a Chiari decompression.

Dr. Chan also describes what patients and families can expect before, during and after Chiari surgery. This presentation was given at a CSF meeting in Sacramento, California. (2019)
