Migraine Treatment

In our segment HealthWise at 5 Monday, Dr. Johnny Qubty, a pain specialist, showed us an option for headache pain which isn't new, but it is newly improved.

The peripheral nerve stimulator can relieve headache pain in a 45 minute procedure. The lead wire is implanted at the base of the back of the head as shown on this x-ray, and it allows the patient to virtually turn off a headache with a hand held control that blocks the nerve.

If you saw that interview and want more information, call Dr. Johnny Qubty.
