Migraine Surgery San Francisco
For chronic sufferers of migraine pain there is now a surgical method of correcting the problem. New and innovative for its field, the most recent alternative for the alleviation of migraine pain is through Botox® surgery. The same surgery that is used on patients of brow lift procedures has been found effective on suffers of migraines as well. Instead of injecting Botox® for firming purposes, surgeons can instead make injections into the temporal nerves of these patients to put an end to their migraine headaches.
The theory behind using brow lifting techniques for the treatment of migraines stems from the understanding that surgeons are essentially using the process to decompress pinched nerves that are the sources of migraine pain in many patients who suffer. When the procedure is performed at Pacific Plastic Surgery Group Dr. Miranda systematically makes small severs into sections of muscle in his patients, thereby releasing the pressure around the nerves and relieving them of their headaches.
