Danny Bonaduce underwent brain surgery to alleviate the pressure caused by hydrocephalus, and the doctors are optimistic about his recovery.
Danny Bonaduce, a former child actor best known for his role in the TV show The Partridge Family, recently underwent surgery for hydrocephalus. The 63-year-old was experiencing difficulty walking, which was attributed to the buildup of fluid in his brain. The procedure involved placing a shunt in his head to drain the fluid, with the hope of relieving pressure around his brain and spinal cord.
According to Bonaduce’s friend and longtime radio co-host, Tommy Anderson, the surgery was successful. “The doctors are optimistic, he responded well to the surgery, he’s got to get his rest,” Anderson told reporters. “Time will tell but he’s got to chill out for the next three weeks so his body heals, and I will tell you the brain surgery will not impact his quick wit.”
Hydrocephalus is a condition that affects the brain and can lead to a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid in the skull. This can cause a range of symptoms, including headaches, nausea, and difficulty walking. While the condition can occur at any age, it is most commonly diagnosed in infants and older adults.
Bonaduce has been open about his health struggles in the past, including struggles with addiction, weight gain, and depression. However, he has also demonstrated resilience, including by completing a number of physical challenges on the reality show Celebrity Fit Club. Fans and supporters will undoubtedly be wishing him a speedy recovery.
