â€œHeadache is one of the most common problems in a personâ€™s life but is often neglected. Patients take to self medication, which increases the problem manifolds. And the damage caused by repeated use of pain killers can lead to problems like gastric ulcers, to life threatening gastrointestinal bleeding, and much more.

With this Headache clinic we are intending to offer a direction towards cure to people who are suffering from various kinds of headache especially the worst scenario today which is chronic daily headacheâ€ said Dr. Debasis Chakraborty, Consultant Neurologist, Fortis Hospitals.
