  • Brain cysts (arachnoid cysts )
  • Chiari malformations and syringomyelia
  • Complex spine injuries and disorders (spinal cord and spinal column trauma, spinal cord injuries, sports-related neck injuries)
  • Congenital spinal cord problems (spina bifida, tethered cord)
  • Craniofacial disorders
  • Craniosynostosis
  • Dystonia
