On this episode of The Neurotransmitters, host Dr. Michael Kentris interviews Dr. Jamie Wright about hydrocephalus, a condition that affects the brain. Dr. Wright shares her personal story of being born with the condition and her journey to becoming a doctor.
They discuss the two main treatment options for hydrocephalus, the shunt and endoscopic third ventriculostomy procedures. Dr. Wright also advocates for patients to have a neurologist on their healthcare team. The conversation shifts to the mental and physical toll of medical training on residents, particularly those with disabilities and chronic illnesses, and the challenges they face in receiving accommodations. Dr. Wright shares her own recent medical leave due to ongoing shunt issues.
This episode sheds light on a little-known condition and the importance of accommodating and supporting residents with disabilities.
