Meredith Barad, MD
Headache and facial pain specialist, Pain management specialist
Originally from Colorado, Dr. Barad completed her undergraduate studies in biology and honors liberal arts at the University of Texas, Austin, TX. She earned her medical degree from Stanford University School of Medicine and completed her internship at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose, CA. She completed her Neurology residency and Pain Medicine fellowship at Stanford Hospital. Then she pursued a two-year research training fellowship studying neuroimaging and pain in the lab of Dr. Sean Mackey at Stanford. This research involved using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to image the brain activation of a patient in chronic pain and train the patient to modify both the activation and experience of pain. In addition to seeing patients and developing the headache center, she helps train anesthesia residents and pain fellows and headache fellows and runs their educational lecture series.
