Living with Hydrocephalus

There is no ONE life with hydrocephalus that is exemplary for all hydrocephalus patients, because every hydrocephalus is just as individual as the person behind it. This makes it even more important to take a closer look.

Patients tell their stories

We have had and still have the opportunity to have a closer exchange with some patients. These insights help us to gain a deeper understanding of the individual challenges they face in their daily lives. We share some of these impressions here on our website.

Thank you for having the courage and willingness to share your impressions here with others.
