MRI Migraine Specialist Treatment Centers

Many migraine surgeons tie off or close the migraine arteries as an addition to relieving pressure on the migraine nerves. This is the only study on surgery to the migraine arteries alone with no other procedures involved. While results sound positive, this study should be treated with a fair amount of caution.

According to the researcher fifty three patients who underwent this procedure on the migraine arteries experience significant improvement in their long term quality of life. Unfortunately this study could not be included in wider analysis of the effectivity of migraine surgery as the results were not verifiable and the possibility exists that they were padded for effect.
