MIGRAINE SURGERY

Migraine surgery is an operation designed to cure migraine for good. In some patients, trigger points around the head causes migraine due to the compression of nerves. Specific surgical release of these nerves could remove migraine. Usually the stuck nerves are above the orbit or just above the neck.
There are many types of migraines in patients and not all of them are candidates for this surgery.
