What can I say about Dr. Ellenbogen and Seattle Children's Hospital that no one else has said already........but here is our story. Born prematurely and VP shunted at 6 months old, our daughter was sick for 20 years, before discovering a Chiari Malformation 1.5 with a size of 25mm going to her C2 WOW. We were to be sent to Anchorage with a surgery scheduled, but my daughter, and her investigation found Dr. Ellenbogen through the UW website and found whom she wanted to met and do her surgery. At that time Dr. Ellenbogen had a mustache, but when our child met him he didn't and that is what she first noticed , and said you look different and that he "was the man in charge", instant friendship and kindness she will never forget. Her first surgery didn't go that well with both lungs collapasing, so we tried again a few months later. Our daughter was a different person the minute she came out of surgery---no pain, no pressure and no headache. Dr. Ellenbogen was there from the first minute to the last during our stay at the hospital. We still talk of Dr. Ellenbogen to our friends in our community that are suffering with the same illness and we always tell them to go see Ellenbogen, to this day we have three friends that have gone to see Dr. Ellenbogen and never will forget his kindness. Our family is celebrating the one year anniversary of this decompression surgery today, and it may me think of Dr. Ellenbogen and his staff and will be forever grateful.

My 9 year old son has been a patient of Dr. Ellenbogen for over 5 years now and not only is he the most knowledgeable doctor I've ever met, but as my son has grown up and had his own questions, Dr. Ellenbogen never shy's away from answering them in a way that I can't even explain. Everything he does is professional, respectful and deliberate. I would highly recommend Dr. Ellenbogen. He is a wonderful man and incredible doctor.

Just after Labor Day 2012, our daughter was referred to Dr. E when the mild concussion she suffered at residential soccer camp in July turned out to not be a concussion but a chiari malformation 1 along with an abnormally large syrinx. What started as an MRI to determine severity of a concussion turned into an MRI with contrast to a referral to neurology to hmm maybe we should look at surgery in late October. Flash forward a week and suddenly it became surgery in a week. Through it all Dr. E and his team were top notch. But it's Dr. E that sets the bar, beyond high, and the tone, he is the teen whisperer for sure. Unfortunately, Children's was over booked and the surgery took place at Harborview. A top notch facility to be sure, but not necessarily the bright, cheery place of Children's. The surgery went as planned and he kept us informed every step of the way. She made great progress and was able to return home after 5-nights. Four nights home and there was an issue and back to the hospital she went. Again Dr. E and his team treated her as is she were his only patient and kept us duly informed. While there were complications not resulting from the original surgery to deal with the malformation and syrinx, Dr. E stayed on top of everything, being appropriately cautious and conservative and assuring my daughter she would be back on the soccer field in the Spring. He is a busy and in demand man and yet you would not know it. When one of the complications turned out to be an undiagnosed infection, Dr. E stopped by the hospital to check-in on her on his way home from Sea-Tac where he had just flown in from a conference, it was after Midnight, he was exhausted and there he was, checking on her. His bedside manner and dedication to his talents is what all should strive towards. Any time he walked into her PICU room, her blood pressure immediately lowered and her confidence was restored. Needless to say, what we expected to be a week long hospital stay and another two weeks recuperating at home turned into just over a month in the hospital and almost 10 weeks at home recuperating. An entire semester of high school missed and such. Regardless, we have absolute faith in Dr. E and could go on and on and on. We recommend Dr. E and his team to the nth degree. Dr. E rocks! Or as our daughter says, Dr. E is just. AWESOME.

I have been seeing Dr. Ellenbogen for 16 years, and I would definitely recommend him to everyone who has a chiari because he has a lot of expertise in helping people with this disorder, he has never pressured me into anything, and he only makes recommendations based on what he thinks will help me the most. I just met with him recently because my chiari was getting worse. Based on that and my MRI results, he thought that surgical intervention would help me the most. My surgery is scheduled for this comming Tuesday, and I definitely trust him to take good care of me and do a good job on my surgery because he is very kind, has excellent bedside manners, he has been helping people like me since before I was born, and he does about 100 chiari surgeries per year. I would definitely recommend him without a doubt.

When you meet Dr. Ellenbogen, you know immediately that he has your child's best interest at heart. My daughter Amelia was born in 2001 with Spina Bifida, and proved to be very complicated. Dr. Ellenbogen not only took outstanding surgical and medical care of her, but was sincere in his dedication to listening to the family. He included us as a part of the team, and as a part of the decision-making process, without even being asked. He was honest, attentive, and amazingly skilled. I would recommend him without hesitation, and am thankful for his care.
