Specialists at the UCSF Headache Center diagnose and treat headaches in patients of all ages, including children and adolescents. The center is the first of its kind on the West Coast, providing comprehensive clinic and hospital care to relieve the most debilitating headaches. In addition, the center conducts research, exploring the basic mechanisms of headache and how existing and new treatments might provide relief.
Our specialists work closely with you and your primary care doctor to develop a long-term, effective treatment plan. When appropriate, we also work with experts in neurosurgery, ear, nose and throat; ophthalmology; and those at the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, which combines conventional and alternative medicine, such as acupuncture, herbs, massage and meditation for treating headaches.
