World Arnold Chiari Malformation Association
 The Chiari Institute  

TCI has seen and operated on more Chiari, Syringomyelia, Craniocervical
instability, and Tethered Cord than anybody else in the world.

TCI is the only center uniquely devoted to the diagnosis and care of
these disorders.

The incidence of CSF leakage in the Posterior Fossa Decompression
performed at TCI is 0.3% (less than 1/10 of the national average).

Unique technologies such as Color Doppler Ultrasound, Introperative CT
scan, and Morphometrics are only available at TCI.

49% of the patients operated at TCI are redo surgeries from other
centers.

Patients with complex pathologic anatomy, postoperative complications,
or EDS should consider to go directly to TCI.

Long distance patients will soon benefit from the use of
videoconferencing for their follow-up visits (instead of costly trips to
NY)
