Our Team

Our team of highly-experienced neurologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, and neurosurgeons are leaders in the field of recognizing and treating normal pressure hydrocephalus, as well as idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), sometimes referred to as Pseudotumor cerebri (PTC).

The complicated nature of both these conditions requires doctors with years of experience in evaluating and treating large numbers of affected patients. Our doctors at Hopkins are pioneers in this field, having created a new surgical treatment method using a specially designed valve.

The rigorous interdisciplinary medicine our doctors’ practice requires they be well-versed in other neurological conditions, making their diagnosis and treatment options broad and wide-ranging. Our doctors’ primary goal is to accurately recognize and treat those patients with these conditions, as they are often misdiagnosed.
