The Headache Center at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is the largest pediatric headache center in the United States, with national and international recognition. Established in 1996, the Headache Center was organized as a multidisciplinary clinic, combining child neurology with child psychology and nursing. Our goal is to diagnose, treat and manage children with headache disorders. In 2009, the Headache Center was recognized as a Clinical Center of Excellence in Headache Medicine by Medical Economics, the only pediatric center in the United States to receive this designation. Lori Crosby is the center’s lead psychologist.
Our medical team sees children with a variety of headache complaints, including migraine, migraine with aura and tension-type headache. Patients are diagnosed using the International Classification of Headache Disorders 2nd Edition, which was developed by the International Headache Society.
