Episode Description

In this week’s Your Life Your Health with Dr. Tamara Sheffield segment sponsored by Intermountain Health, we discuss how surgeons at Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital are the first in the nation to successfully implant a new brain shunt accessory for young patients with hydrocephalus.  This neurological condition causes a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid in the deep cavities of the brain that often causes frequent hospitalizations.
