Migraine Surgery Program in Savannah, GA
It's no secret that migraines can greatly restrict your daily activities and impact your quality of life. With migraine surgery at Savannah Plastic Surgery, you can greatly reduce the frequency and severity of migraines.
What is the Migraine Surgery Program?
The migraine surgery program is an advanced migraine relief technique that uses delicate surgical approaches to relieve chronic headaches. Even if you have tried other migraine treatments, you can find success with the migraine surgery program. Migraine surgery is often recommended to patients who have not achieved their desired results with medications and other interventions.
The Migraine Surgery Program at Savannah Plastic Surgery was started by Dr. Matthew McLeod. This surgery targets headaches that are caused by compressed sensory nerves. The most common sites for these compressions are known as "trigger points," and are found in the forehead, temples, back of the head, and inside the nose. Migraine surgery manually relieves the pressure on these trigger points to provide relief.
