HOUSTON: Houston Neurologist, Dr. Ninan T. Mathew, received the 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Texas Neurological Society on February 4 at its annual medical conference in Austin. The Texas Neurological Society is comprised of 600 board-certified neurologists throughout the State of Texas.

Dr. Ninan T. Mathew is a familiar name in the field of headache worldwide. Dr. Mathew was born in the state of Kerala, in south India, and received his undergraduate degree at the University of Madras in Tamil Nadu and his medical degree at Trivandrum Medical College, Kerala. His interest in neurology started in medical school. Post-graduate training in neurology followed at Christian Medical College, Vellore, India. He completed additional fellowship training in cerebrovascular disease and stroke at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, where he subsequently served as a faculty member.

His interest in headaches started through research, measuring cerebral blood flow in migraine patients while at Baylor. Early on, he realized that headache was totally ignored and poorly understood by physicians, even though it was a common malady. In the 1970s, etiology and treatment of headache was primitive and the patients suffered needlessly with overuse of pain medication. Comorbidities of migraine were not given appropriate importance.
