Welcome to the

Headache service

Headaches are among the most common chronic health conditions worldwide. According to the World Health Organization, about half to three quarters of all adults report having suffered at least one headache event during the last year. The great majority of headache disorders can be successfully managed if a correct diagnosis is made. Once the headache becomes chronic, however, a multidisciplinary approach is needed.

The headache service of the Neurology Department of the University Hospital of Zurich offers individual counseling and support for patients with acute and chronic headaches. Special emphasis is placed on an interdisciplinary approach.

As an academic headache center we moreover conduct and contribute to local and international research, which enables us to provide our patients the latest diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
