Meet Anthony Rodrigues, MD, PhD
Department + Services
Pediatrics, Pediatric Neurology
Clinical Focus Areas
General neurology with special interest in pain syndromes (headaches, migraines, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), etc.)
Research Focus Areas
Currently working on understanding headache mechanisms through the action of propofol. Plan to study MRI and EEG changes in the setting of using low dose propofol to abort acute headaches/migraines.
