Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak Treatments

Relief from Chronic Headaches Due to CSF Leaks

Call for an Appointment

Severe headaches, especially when you're upright; chronic migraines that don’t respond to medication; and new persistent headaches may signal a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak.

While CSF leaks are often misdiagnosed, Duke neuroradiologists are among the few experts in the country skilled at finding and repairing CSF leaks. Our comprehensive evaluation often identifies CSF leaks in people whose symptoms have not responded to conventional treatment. Our experience treating CSF leaks makes it possible for people to obtain relief from symptoms they’ve lived with for years, sometimes even decades.
