The Chiari Center is one of the best-equipped centers in the nation for the diagnosis and treatment of Chiari malformation and related disorders. This reflects our neurological approach that gets to the very heart of the problem rather than a radiological approach based only on an MRI image. Our recommendations are based on what we find to be wrong with your brain and spinal cord, and not simply with your MRI.
Visiting the Chiari Center is easy; we’re located on the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan at Columbia St. Mary's Hospital Milwaukee in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Chiari Center is easily accessible from Chicago, Minneapolis or Detroit and is only twenty minutes from Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport. A variety of nearby hotels will fit every budget. Downtown Milwaukee and the dynamic Third Ward are just 10 minutes away.
Follow the link at the bottom of the page to make an appointment online. You are also welcome to call or e-mail the Chiari Center with any questions you may have.
We ask that you complete the Online Patient History Questionnaire form (link below) and forward it to us along with a recent MRI scan of the cervical spine. This will assist us in tailoring your visit to your specific situation.
