We are proud to announce the addition of Lisa Wadsworth, PA, to our team at the Barrow NPH Center!

NPH is a condition unique to the elderly population, in which symptoms including balance/gait disturbances, cognitive decline, and urinary incontinence mirror those of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other causes of dementia. Many patients with NPH are misdiagnosed until they have significantly deteriorated or possibly subjected to unnecessary tests, exams, and treatments for other conditions. Delaying the correct diagnosis of NPH can lead to irreversible neurological decline and can also impart unnecessary costs to you and your insurance company.

The Barrow Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) screening clinic employs a team of health care providers who take special care to rapidly but carefully diagnose and treat patients.  Confirming a diagnosis of NPH can require complex testing, evaluation, and treatment planning. Collaboration between specialists in our screening clinic helps you get your diagnosis faster, so you can begin your process of treatment and recovery. The addition of Lisa to our team will help us continue to serve you better, and we are honored Lisa has brought her clinical expertise to our center.

Please post any questions concerning our screening process to this blog, or contact me directly.

Regards, Maggie Bobrowitz, RN, MBA
Neuroscience Program Coordinator
