The Mayfield Chiari Center

The symptoms of Chiari can lead patients to doctor after doctor looking for answers. Which is why patients need to be evaluated and treated by experts who can decipher the confusing or ambiguous symptoms. We are one of the few centers in the U.S. that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of adults and adolescents with Chiari malformation and syringomyelia. Some patients only require monitoring, but others need surgery to enlarge the bony opening and restore normal fluid circulation around the brain.

Why we're different

Expertise. We evaluate more than 150 people affected with Chiari each year (a typical practice only sees a couple, if any, Chiari patients in a year).

Priority Consult. For patients seeking treatment in Cincinnati, we offer a no-cost review of their case by a neurosurgeon who is part of a team of experts in Chiari diagnosis.

Evidence-based. Our team includes seven neurosurgeons (most centers have only one or two) who follow center-wide protocols and track outcomes.

Patient-focused. We listen to an advisory board of former patients and Chiari advocates who help us understand the patient perspective.

Research. We are part of the University of Cincinnati and conduct research to improve diagnosis and treatment of Chiari and related disorders.

Legacy. The Mayfield Chiari Center is a focused program of the Mayfield Clinic for Brain & Spine, a leader in neurosurgical patient care, research, and education for over 75 years.

Easy access. Located in Cincinnati Ohio, the midwest is within easy travel distance for patients from across the country.
