Physicians in the Headache Center work closely with specialists in neurosurgery, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, psychiatry, pain medicine and radiology to help treat headache disorders through medications, procedural interventions, changes in behavior and nutrition, and other approaches. In addition, our doctors provide patients the means to deal with acute headaches, such as migraine, so future occurrences can be relieved quickly.

When scans such as MRI or other diagnostic tests are appropriate, our specialists have access to some of the world’s most advanced technology to assist with diagnosis and treatment planning.
