Chiari and syringomyelia are disorders that often happen in kids. They are very complicated problems with the brain and spine, but kids should be able to understand, too! Watch Dr. Krystal Tomei explain what Chiari and syringomyelia are and how doctors can help you feel better. Can kids with Chiari or syringomyelia play games with their friends? Does surgery hurt?
