What Is an Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy Procedure?
Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy Procedure?
CSF is a fluid that’s found in your spine and brain. It provides additional protection for your brain’s cortex.
In some cases, a ventriculostomy might get performed to relieve intracranial pressure. A traumatic brain injury often causes intracranial pressure.
Step One: Schedule an Appointment
Reach out to our office to make an appointment with Dr. Garner.
Step Two: Come in for Your Surgery
A ventriculostomy procedure lasts around one hour. General anesthesia isn’t needed. Local anesthesia gets applied to the area of your scalp where Dr. Garner will make an entry.
You can also expect part of your scalp to get shaved during the procedure.
Step Three: Recover
Our office will give you thorough post-op instructions so you can recover quickly.
