Expert care you can trust

If you experience headaches or migraines, it's important to get evaluated by a neurologist or a headache specialist who can develop a specialized headache treatment plan—we can help.

What can we help you find?

Caring for the entire spectrum of headaches

The Headache Center provides headache treatment plans for migraines, cluster headaches, facial pain, sinus headaches, tension headaches and related conditions. We treat both primary headaches (the head pain itself is the problem) and secondary headaches (the head pain is a symptom of an underlying condition). The center employs a multidisciplinary team that includes physicians, nurse practitioners, psychological care providers and rehabilitation professionals who offer medical therapy as well as interventional options. 

Comprehensive diagnosis and treatment

Outpatient treatment at the Headache Center includes education about headache disorders, the identification of headache triggers and the development of a headache treatment plan for management of the headache problem. In addition, our program offers an outpatient infusion center and an inpatient program which provides a safe and comfortable environment for treatment options such as medication detoxification, as well as intravenous medication to help break severe headache cycles. The inpatient setting can also help the patient get used to complex headache treatment regimens and provide monitoring for individuals with co-existing medical problems.

The best treatment for headache management is always determined after proper diagnosis and trigger identification. It is important to isolate what triggers headaches and if behavioral methods can be used to avoid the triggers in the first place.

Our staff is dedicated to educating the next generation of medical professionals at our renowned medical school.

We're empowering imagination and supporting pioneering discovery to transform our field and create a better tomorrow.
