How We Can Help
We identify the underlying cause of your headaches or migraines. Our specialists provide a precise examination to find, and treat, the cause of your symptoms.
If you experience acute headaches, our clinicians will provide a precise examination to find the cause of your symptoms and find a suitable treatment.
Migraine treatment is aimed at stopping symptoms and preventing future attacks. Your treatment choices depend on the frequency and severity of your headaches, whether you have nausea and vomiting with your headaches, how disabling your headaches are, and other medical conditions you have. Many medications have been designed to treat migraines.
Both Dr Winters and Dr Ang are appointed staff specialist neurologists at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and are experts in stroke, TIA, and related neurovascular disorders. Migraine is a common neurological presentation. In some instances, migraine can present with stroke-like symptoms that do not cause any long-lasting harm and almost always recover completely. Dr Winters and Dr Ang frequently treat migraine patients in their practice, and both are proud of the success they have achieved with their patients.
Dr Winters and Dr Ang are both remarked as clinicians who are compassionate and are willing to spend the necessary time with patients. Both doctors believe in a comprehensive assessment and educating patients about their diagnosis and treatment. Doing so empowers patients, alleviates anxiety, and reduces uncertainty, especially as migraine treatment often takes some time before it is beneficial.
Newer treatments like muscle relaxants and CGRP monoclonal antibodies are very effective methods of reducing migraine frequency. Both treatment modalities are offered.
