If you are experiencing migraines, you may find relief from an experienced physician with Jefferson Health. Our staff is recognized nationally and internationally as major leaders and innovators in the field of headache, including migraines.

Until recently, most physicians believed that a migraine was simply a vascular condition, induced by blood vessel dilation. Today, new insight suggests that the pathophysiology of migraine is much more complex; it is now thought that multiple mechanisms contribute to the onset of migraine, beginning long before a person feels any headache pain.

Our team of registered nurses, headache fellows, neurologists and psychologists or psychiatrists will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan to reduce migraine frequency and intensity. Patients who suffer from chronic migraine have a higher prevalence of PFO than the general population. Closure of this defect may bring relief for some patients.
