North Shore Health System has recently dismantled the team that specifically dealt with the surgical care of patients suffering from Chiari Malformation and related disorders. This has left many patients recieving inadequate post-operative care. General physicians are making care decisions about a rare group of disorders that they have had little to no training in. The Physician Assistants and other former members of the Chiari team were well versed in these disorders. We ask that you sign this petition in support of reinstating the Chiari team so that those of us suffering from this disorder can get the knowledgable care we need.

The PAs that worked with these children knew their cases and diagnoses and had the experience necessary to care for our kids. Yes the residents and attendings maybe somewhat knowlegable of this condition but they do not have the expertise or experience needed to do the job RIGHT! You must reinstate the team for our childrens' sake. They are the only ones hurting from this terrible decision that you have made!
