Our Program

The USC Cerebrospinal Fluid Diversion Center (USC CSF Diversion Center) specializes in the medical and surgical management of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) disorders. Our multidisciplinary program combines the expertise of medical professionals from neurosurgery, neurology, ophthalmology, radiology, physical therapy, occupational therapy and urology with state-of-the-art diagnostic exams and treatment therapies, to maximize patient outcomes and recovery.

As a leading center for CSF diversion, a procedure that helps drain excess fluid from the brain and spinal cord, we are dedicated to driving diagnostic, treatment and surgical innovations.

Our multidisciplinary team offers comprehensive assessments and treatments for:

  • Normal pressure hydrocephalus
  • Pseudotumor cerebri (idiopathic intracranial hypertension)
  • Chiari malformations
  • Hydrocephalus (communicating and noncommunicating)
  • Intraventricular tumors and cysts
  • CSF leakage
  • Spontaneous intracranial hypotension

Our Approach

The multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach to care at the USC CSF Diversion Center allows our physicians to expertly evaluate, diagnose and treat patients with a broad range of CSF conditions, including patients with complicated symptom histories and those with advanced CSF disease.

Our medical specialists thoroughly evaluate each patient’s symptom history and work together to determine a diagnosis and craft a tailored treatment plan. We offer same-day consultations with multiple specialists, allowing patients greater flexibility when scheduling appointments.

We also offer a broad range of advanced diagnostic testing, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), along with state-of-the-art treatment therapies for patients diagnosed with myriad CSF disorders.

Our goal is to provide world-class, comprehensive care to patients with CSF conditions and to continue to spearhead advancements in diagnostic and treatment options.
