The following treatment options may be recommended by your doctor:
Lifestyle changes and oral medications are often the first treatment for someone with IIH, but if the symptoms do not improve, surgery may be the next step. One surgical treatment option involves internally directing the cerebral spinal fluid by means of an implanted device.
If surgery is your next step, a neurosurgeon will be responsible for implanting your lumboperitoneal shunt.
