Welcome to a multidisciplinary headache center with patient-centered philosophy. The Center was founded by Dr. Eugene D. Kaplan who has been involved in the headache treatment field for more than 30 years. Dr. Kaplan is the first and only Board Certified headache specialist in the Capital Region. His approach to treatment of headaches is based on unique expertise encompassing Neurology, Vascular Neurology (Stroke), Headache Medicine and Pain Management. He is board certified in all of these fields.
Our Headache Center of Northeastern New York location has many unique features. In spite of increasing "commercialization" of modern health care the Center's goal is to provide a variety of treatment options while preserving personalized and efficient patient-physician relationship that helps our patients to have a healthier and more productive life.
At the Kaplan Headache Center we provide comprehensive consultation, testing and treatment for migraine, cluster, tension and other headaches. The Center is constantly looking for new ways to improve headache management. We are in a continuous search of that optimum balance of treatment modalities and lifestyle modifications which can allow you to enjoy every day of your life and hopefully become headache free. We are doing that through learning new achievements in medicine and adapting new innovative technologies. We believe in the accountability of clinicians and patients working together in achieving these goals because accountability is the basis of trust.
The Headache Center has developed a robust technological basis in the testing of abnormal conditions using Carotid Ultrasound, Transcranial Doppler, Brain Blood Flow Monitoring, Nerve Conduction testing, Muscle Electrical Activity testing, Brain Electrical Activity testing, Neurovascular Ultrasound, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound and ECG. We use x-rays and practically harmless ultrasound to increase precision and improve results of procedures during invasive headache and pain treatment. Physical Therapy is also a part of our practice and is available to our patients at a convenient time.
Our office is located in Clifton Park with easy access from Albany, Saratoga Springs, Schenectady, Troy, Latham, Amsterdam and other cities from routes 90 and 87.
