The Barrow Difference – Jan and Tom Lewis Migraine Treatment Program

Our experts in the Jan and Tom Lewis Migraine Treatment Program understand that migraine is not just a headache. In fact, it is considered one of the most disabling diseases in the world. It is also one of the most common. A study measuring the burden of migraine in the United States found that one in four U.S. households includes someone with migraine.

Cutting-Edge Headache Research

Additionally, our headache specialists and the Barrow leadership team are working to establish a world-class research center for headache and migraine. This is possible because of our dedicated supporters.

Program Director Kerry Knievel, DO, and her team of headache specialists are performing studies in migraine and CSF leak/intracranial hypotension. They plan to expand the number and scope of clinical studies available to patients over time. They also aim to engage in basic translational research. This could advance our knowledge of the genetic, environmental, and inflammatory triggers that cause migraine and other headaches. As a result, this knowledge could lead to even better headache therapies.
