I have Kasier and went to Dr. Won in Fontana (Riverside). I know that's far. At the time that was the only doctor listed as a specialist for Chiari in my area.

All the best!

Re: Help! Northern California syringomyelia doctor?

Well, I have moved to Placerville CA now and am on the AARP Secure Horizons Medicare plan. Life goes on.

Since 2006 when I incurred post traumatic syringomyelia, I have bounced from doctor to doctor, none addressing my syringo and what I actually need to do about the condition. I am on pain meds, gaba and Relefen. Have Vicodin for last resort. My last surgeon was not very helpful and didn't want to operate on thoratic area, the doctors at the Roseville Kaiser pain clinic were not helpful but I did have a pain doctor who advised that I now have fibro as well. "Been down so long, it looks like up to me".


Does anyone know of a doctor who has treated syringo patients in the Northern California area? I asked Kaiser customer service and they couldn't help. I gave up on Kaiser and now need a doctor who takes Medicare and knows what I am talking about.
