Neurosurgeon in the San Francisco Area?

Postby syri » Tue May 13, 2014 6:39 pm

Any recommendations for a neurosurgeon with syringomyelia experience around San Francisco? Stanford? UCSF? Elsewhere in the area?

Thank you!

One of the great experts is Ulrich Batzdorf in L.A. You should contact his office for recs in the SF area, or just go down there for a consultation to start with.

Not in San Fran, but within your state.
He performed several surgeries for me.
Just Google his name and you can find quite a lot of information about him.
He is discussed frequently on the web site of CSFleak.org.

I have multiple issues: Chiari I Malformation 13mm, before decompression surgery, syrinx , a host of serious spinal issues, cranial csf leak....etc.

Holly, Langston MD I believe has taken over for Dr Ulrich Batzdorf... he is semi retired but does see a few patients
Once you choose hope, anything's possible.

Dr. Johnson has an office at UC Davis in Sacramento

http://www.spine-practice.com/news.php

Dr. Johnson trained under Dr. Batzdorf and "he attributes many of his successes to the training he had with Dr Ulrich Batzdorf and Dr Donald Becker at UCLA"
