The Migraine and Neurovascular Disease Clinic (MiND) is a multidisciplinary structure in the Robert-Debré University Hospital, Paris, France.
We are specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric headaches. Migraine is part of the so-called primary headaches, which are not due to an organic cause (e.g. viral infection, sinusitis, brain inflammation). The other common type of primary headache is tension headache. The MiND Clinic is also part of a global network of research on acute pediatric stroke, the most common acute neurovascular disease in children.
The MiND Clinic’s mission is to provide a high quality multidisciplinary approach to children suffering from headache or neurovascular diseases, and to promote research and training on the causes, management and treatment of these illnesses.
We have a multidisciplinary approach to headache and provide medical and nursing care, psychological assessment and also teaching of relaxation techniques for children and for their families, if needed.
The MiND Clinic is part of the pediatric emergency department, and collaborates with the department of neurology and the pain unit.
Robert-Debré University Hospital is specialized in diagnostic neuroimaging and neurophysiological exams. Within the hospital, we work with pediatricians from different subspecialties.
A partnership with the Adolphe de Rothschild Foundation in Paris provides additional support for neurophthalmology, neurosurgery and neurointerventions.
