Headache Center

Headache or head pains are common complaints in daily lives and can cause substantial discomfort by affecting an individual ability to perform their normal day-to-day activities. They may result in non-emergency conditions like sinusitis and allergies, but in some cases, headaches can be a symptom of many underlying causes. Some common underlying causes of headache include migraine, vertigo, and sinusitis. Headaches are of several types, which include migraine headache, sinus headache, cluster headache, tension headache, ice-pricking headache, cariogenic headache, hypertension headache and pregnancy headache. Diagnosis of the headache depends on the affected area, and the physicians can diagnose the condition by physical examination, blood and imaging tests. Under-treatment or over-treatment of the headache can lead to complications, including gastric and neurological problems, organ damage, and medication dependency.

The Headache Centre at UMMC provides individualized care to patients with headache and facial pain disorders. Our team of physicians have the experience and are experts in diagnosing the cause and offering a wide range of management to ease the patient’s pain and restore their quality of life. We provide medication therapy, psychological counselling, re-alignment of medications, complementary treatment, sleep evaluation, and consistent follow-up to patients as a treatment approach to headache. Surgeries are performed under local or general anaesthesia, and they are done in one to two hours. These surgeries are not performed on the brain, and surgeons don’t remove or go through the skull bones.
