Migraine headaches affect nearly 1 in 6 adults living in the United States (1) and cause debilitating symptoms that impact the ability to perform daily activities. Headaches are consistently one of the top five reasons patients visit the emergency department. Several preventive and abortive treatments exist for migraines and work well for most patients. However, some patients have tried almost every treatment and continue to have severe migraines.
Plastic surgeons may be able to help those patients who continue to have inadequate relief with medical treatment.
