Headache Center 

A Specialty Center for Headache and Migraine Management

Baylor University Medical Center's Headache Center provides diagnosis and treatment options for people who experience severe headaches, helping restore a better quality of life.

We carefully evaluate headache conditions, define the origin of the headache pain and administer appropriate therapies. By identifying an accurate diagnosis, we can then develop a specific treatment plan for each patient's particular situation.
