Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

Neurosurgeons at Swedish/Issaquah have one of the few programs in the United States dedicated to diagnosing and treating adults with normal pressure hydrocephalus, a form of adult hydrocephalus.

If a doctor has told you – or a loved one – that you have dementia, learn more about normal pressure hydrocephalus and consider asking for a second opinion.
