Normal Pressure hydrocephalus (NPH)

NPH, as it is known, has historically been misdiagnosed as Alzheimer’s disease. Yet once treated appropriately, patients make dramatic recoveries and are transformed from a world of dementia and difficulty back to a normal and vibrant existence. At VCU Health, Harold F. Young, M.D., and his research partner, Anthony Marmarou, Ph.D., have built an international reputation for the diagnosis and treatment of normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH). Their work around NPH has resulted in the current global standard of care.
