Headache and Migraine
The UT Medical Center offers specialized diagnosis and treatment for patients with migraine, cluster headaches, and chronic refractory head pain.
We believe that with an understanding of the causes and treatments of headache, patients and their doctor can better manage this often debilitating condition. Headache seminars are offered. Patients may also participate in monthly relaxation classes and a headache support group.
In addition, the headache team conducts headache research, providing opportunity for patients to participate in research protocols regarding the causes and consequences of headache and in studies that can help identify more effective therapies.
UT headache specialists are internationally recognized for expertise in headache management. Members of the Headache Program have published their findings in both national and international journal. Dr. Tietjen, program director and chairman of neurology, is on the executive board of the American Headache Society and is a reviewer for the journals Headache and Cephalagia.
