Between October 1993 and July 2017, more than 1000 patients affected by the Neuro-Cranio-Vertebral Syndrome and/or the Filum Disease with Arnold-Chiari I, Syringomyelia and Scoliosis (in different diagnostic combinations) have been treated according to the guidelines of the FILUM SYSTEM®.
In the majority of cases a positive evolution was obtained, with a high patient satisfaction rate.
For some years now, patients in the follow-up postoperative phase have been invited to write testimonials about their clinical history for our website.
We highly appreciate their open-hearted and selfless involvement by expressing their views on our exclusive treatment methods.
NOTE: The opinions expressed in the testimonials are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Institut Chiari & Siringomielia & Escoliosis de Barcelona.
