Expert Care for Spinal CSF Leaks

Northwestern Medicine Spinal Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Leak Program at Northwestern Memorial Hospital offers patients clinical expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal CSF leaks.

For those cases when a CSF leak does not heal after conservative treatment, the care of a skilled specialist is paramount to correct diagnosis, pinpointing the leak’s location and determining appropriate treatment. As one of few dedicated CSF leak treatment programs in the country, our program brings together a multidisciplinary care team that specializes in CSF leaks, as well as neurological conditions that can cause them.

Your care team includes specialists in:

  • Neurology
  • Neurosurgery
  • Interventional and Diagnostic Neuroradiology
