About UC Irvine Health NPH Team
The NPH team is dedicated to the development of clinical pathways that help guide you through the process of diagnosis
and surgery. Our neurosurgery team is the only one in Orange County to use magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI) to chart the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain and
any unusual buildup. We are also the only neurosurgery team in Orange County that
uses ShuntCheck III, a non-invasive device that
allows our physicians to assess shunt function.
Once the diagnosis has be made, our highly skilled NPH team, led by Dr. Jefferson Chen,
uses minimally invasive surgical techniques to
insert a shunt that drains excess fluid from the
brain. Our involvement with the perioperative
home team allows us to facilitate anesthetic
care and optimize medical condition prior to
and after surgery.
