    I am a 36 years old Chiari patient with EDS. Through my visits to different neurosurgeons, I have realized some sergeons significantly change their surgical approach to prevent the brain from falling into the space created by the decompression, while others do nothing different. What surgical approach do you take with EDS patients? If you change your approach, could you give an overview of how you approach an EDS Chiari decompression please.
    Thank you,
    Melissa Lane

      I called Dr. Gilmer’s office last week because I think I might have EDS (not diagnosed, just lots of symptoms) and am scheduled for decompression surgery on Apr 4. Her nurse Wendy told me her approach is exactly the same – for EDS and regular patients. I am curious if you get a different answer on this website.
