Surgery Helps When Other Treatments Don't -- But So Far, Few Surgeons Are Performing It

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Feb 27, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- A simple plastic surgery procedure can help some patients with migraine headaches. But so far, relatively few U.S. plastic surgeons are performing migraine surgery, reports a study in the March issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery(R), the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Plastic surgeons are aware of studies showing the effectiveness of migraine surgery, and at least some are interested in performing the procedure. However, they still perceive "significant barriers" to the increased use of surgical treatment for migraine, according to the study by Dr. Theodore A. Kung and colleagues of University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
