Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast experience in diagnosing & treating all neurological as well as all other health/medical conditions, and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns related to your son.

I see you are looking for a support group or a gathering with young adults with hydrocephalus for your 43 years old son who has hydrocephalus and doing great now, but needs to socialize.

Please find below some important links for hydrocephalus support groups. They have their contact details too provided in the links and you guys please contact them and you guys can also find out whether they have a local branch in & around where your son has been living so that he can also visit their place and socialize with other people who also have hydrocephalus.

These are some famous hydrocephalus support groups;

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
