Headache and Facial Pain Center

New Hope for Persistent Pain

PatientsThe UC Health Headache and Facial Pain Center offers hope to people who suffer from pain and haven’t found adequate relief.

While an occasional headache is common, when head pain becomes chronic or debilitating, finding answers and relief may be much more difficult.

UC Health brings together some of the nation’s foremost experts on headache and facial pain in a unique and rare program designed to bring answers and healing.

The UC Health Headache and Facial Pain Center is part of the renowned UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute. With dozens of clinical specialties, leading treatment approaches and cutting-edge research, the program offers expert care to patients who have complex headache and facial pain conditions to help return them to full function and quality of life.

Combining Specialties for Comprehensive Care

The UC Health Headache and Facial Pain Center brings together expertise and resources to solve the pain puzzle. Often, people with these issues have seen a physician, tried some treatments, but still suffer with unresolved symptoms that disrupt their lives.

In this program, physicians from multiple specialties work together from a broad perspective to look at the whole person. They understand the complex nature of these disorders, from the most common to the very unusual. The result is a more accurate and complete diagnosis, and a comprehensive and effective treatment plan.

A treatment plan may involve behavioral therapies, the right combination of medications or even surgeries in rare situations. A complete range of treatments are available, including botox, dietary and behavioral therapies, acupuncture, and nerve stimulators.

Headache and facial pain symptoms often overlap, making it difficult to determine the underlying cause of the problem. In addition, a person may have multiple conditions, so that treating only one disorder may not bring relief. Living with undiagnosed or misdiagnosed pain is not necessary.

The UC Health Headache and Facial Pain Center gives patients access to a diverse group of physicians, including:

  • Neurologists
  • Neurosurgeons
  • Headache specialists
  • Otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat specialists)
  • Dental specialists
  • Anesthesiologists/pain specialists
