We offer the most effective, quick and affordable treatment for intracranial hypertension,

Idiopathic intracranial hypertension  is increased pressure around your brain. It occurs when cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), the liquid that cushions your spinal cord and brain, builds up in your skull. Pressure builds up in your brain and on your optic nerve, the nerve at the back of your eye that helps you see.

Treatment of Acoustic Neuroma

For most people, intracranial hypertension symptoms improve with treatment. Your provider may recommend:

  • Weight loss: If you have a high BMI, weight loss can reduce your symptoms. Your healthcare provider may recommend losing 5% to 10% of your body weight.
  • Medication: Some medicines can help manage the symptoms. Your doctor may prescribe acetazolamide (Diamox®) or topiramate to help your body produce less cerebrospinal fluid. You may also take a diuretic (water pill) to decrease fluid retention.
  • Surgery: In severe cases, you may need surgery for intracranial hypertension. Your dotor may recommend a spinal fluid shunt. A shunt is a long, thin tube placed in your brain to drain excess cerebrospinal fluid. Or you may have an eye surgery called optic nerve sheath fenestration. Your provider makes small incisions around your optic nerve to allow better cerebrospinal fluid drainage.
