Plastic Surgery for Migraines? Maybe.

Teri Robert @trobert Health Guide
  • Anyone with Migraines will tell you that we all wish there were a cure for Migraine disease. The reality, however, is that there is no cure at this time.

    Even though there is no cure for the disease, there are effective treatments, both for prevention and for treating Migraine attacks when they occur. Preventive treatments, at their best, reduce not only the frequency of Migraines, but also the severity, making those Migraines easier to treat and easier to live with.

    Over the weekend, I kept seeing news headlines such as the following:

    •  Surgery may cure some cases of Migraine

    •  Surgery Potentially Best Option for Severe Migraine Headaches

    •  Surgery the best bet for Migraine headaches

    My problem with these headlines is that they're inaccurate at best. The articles that go with the headlines are about Dr. Bahman Guyuron's surgical procedure for the PREVENTION of Migraine. I reported on one study of this procedure in our article Plastic Surgery for Migraine? That study had a one-year follow-up.

    Add This Infographic to Your Website or Blog With This Code:

    In newly released research, 79 Migraine sufferers were followed for at least five years after having undergone Dr. Guyuron's surgical procedure...

    What were the results? Is this procedure for real? To find out more, continue reading Plastic Surgery for Migraines? Maybe.

    Live well,
